As I hope to not fill your time with my ranting on St.Patty’s Day, I’m angry and I need a second. Once again, humans show their ass and arrogance to Mother Nature.
WHY ARE PEOPLE SO OBLIVIOUS?!?!
Why are people so damn self-absorbed?!
As you guys know here in southern California, (and actually no more than 3 miles away from my house) we are experiencing an insane SUPERBLOOM! The Superbloom happened in 2017 also but not nearly as vast and thick. This Superbloom is on steroids compared to the last one!
Obviously this has become an extreme attraction. I was so excited seeing all the people flocking like birds to the fields, ready to OBSERVE and APPRECIATE this rare performance that mother nature is putting on for California, because it is indeed RARE.
BUT OF COURSE, within days Park Rangers were there roping off the fields because people were destroying the flowers to get “the perfect picture.” Now I’m not assuming….but I’m assuming it’s on behalf on Instagram.😑 In fact, I’m positive because I’ve seen 1000 of Instagram posts at the Superbloom. Guys, it is ridiculous and sad and freaking shallow that this is happening. I saw one post where an “Influencer” had spread out a blanket and was posing in a bikini. Not only was it 45 degrees out (not the point, if she wants to wear a bikini I could care less! To each his own!) BUT, she, with that one photo, had taken out well over 70 Poppies. It’s so upsetting that we just don’t appreciate nature as a whole. Between our oceans, our o-zone, Indigenous Reservations, forests, all the way down to a random flower field…we disrupt and destroy..How hard is it to simply stare in awe at this immaculate creation! Is it necessary to tromp through them so YOU can look pretty in a picture? To destroy untouched beauty so you can spread out like beached whale to capture that ‘oh so perfect’ position? ..I just find it ridiculous..as did Mother Nature herself because she sent her most sneaky slitherers to scare the humans away, as 5 people have been bitten by Rattlesnakes! Yes Rattlesnakes! But it ain’t stoppin’ peeps. Here’s a tweet from ABC7-
Needless to say, I’m so thankful that CHP, city cops, and Park Rangers came together for the benefit of nature and said “NOPE! IF YOU CAN’T APPRECIATE IT, YOU CAN’T COME HERE!” Let me add- I’m not for Police Enforcement when it’s not needed but in this case ENFORCE AWAY!!
Tens of thousands of people! Holy Moses!
Wow! #poppynightmare 😮
Anyway, I’ll get off my soap box. Thanks for listening! I know I can come here with this kind of angst because many of you would agree. I know most of you are nature lovers like myself!
Okay, with that behind me, here are a few beautiful Poppy fields! Guys, THEY ARE THICCC!!😜😜 Have a great Monday everyone!
What state is this again??? Haha
Have a good week guys!!♥️♥️🌼🌸
