Rare fire poppies are seen blooming in Toro Park, in the area burned by the River Fire last summer. The seeds of this plant are dormant until smoke causes germination. Only native to a few areas of California, these seeds may possibly have been dormant for 100 years! Photographed with an iPhone 12 pro.
