Not sick of the super bloom? Here's where you can still see wildflowers near Palm Springs - The Desert Sun
The bad news? A lot of people still need to be educated about outdoors etiquette (see: the illegal helicopter landing at Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve). The good news? There's still time to respectfully view Mother Nature's beauty.
You don't have to travel far to see it. There are plenty of #flowerpower spots to visit in and around Palm Springs. Plus, experts say the bloom will last longer (since it started later) in the high desert — potentially through April and beyond. So, head toward Joshua Tree in the coming weeks.
"My family and I came out for the weekend to Palm Springs to check out Desert X and to see the super bloom," said Ken Bensinger, who visited from Los Angeles. "On the drive out, we were amazed at the brilliantly hued flowers you could see by the freeway, including startlingly yellow blooms tucked beneath the giant windmills. A friend who lives in Palm Springs gave us a hot tip, telling us not to bother making a long drive into the desert in search of flowers (because) the best blooms were in an empty lot behind the Walmart. And she was right! An astonishing carpet of purple and white with sprinkles of yellow. Best thing we saw all weekend."

A helicopter landed in a California poppy field during the super bloom, and officials are furious - The Washington Post
March 27 The super arrogant seem to like the super bloom. Park officials in California’s Antelope Valley, about 70 miles north of Los Angeles, said Tuesday that in recent days someone landed a helicopter in a field of poppies — part of the massive bloom unfolding across the state — and then began a hike. [California’s super bloom is the best in years, so vibrant it can be seen from space] “We never thought it would be explicitly necessary to state that it is illegal to land a helicopter in the middle of the fields and begin hiking off trail,” the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve said in a Facebook post along with the hashtag #Don’tDoomTheBloom, according to the Los Angeles Times. “We were wrong.” When a law enforcement official began to approach the pair, they ran back to the helicopter and fled. Officers are watching for people illegally entering the park through barbed-wire fencing, trampling flowers. It only takes a few to wreck the habitat for years to come. There are areas in the Reserve that haven't recovered from trampling in 2017.#DontDoomTheBloom #CaStateParks pic.twitter.com/V3... Mar 29, 2019

A couple landed the helicopter and walked out onto the fields of flowers, the park said. When a law enforcement officer began approaching, the pair ran back to the chopper and flew away.
Staff members are working to identify the helicopter and its pilot, said Russ Dingman, a spokesman for the reserve.
“This could have been a serious incident. Luckily no one was injured,” he said.
Many of the state’s massive wildflower blooms run the risk of being destroyed by visitors. Last week, Lake Elsinore closed access to its poppy fields in Walker Canyon after throngs descended on the delicate blooms.

Officials at the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve are also expecting a later bloom there.
But in Lake Elsinore, the poppies are already at their peak, decorating the hillside with splashes of color.
"I've seen it on the way, when I've driven by," said Diane Bosma of San Diego, who recently stopped for the first time.
"From the freeway, you get a taste, but there's so much more than that."

Gardening: These plants thrive in the dog days of summer
It is a rare citrus species since it loses its leaves in the winter.
On the plus side, it is extremely hardy and would grow in the Antelope Valley. Fruit is edible but best turned into marmalade since it is highly acidic when fresh. Flying dragon makes an outstanding living fence with its impenetrable thorns.
