“SUPER POPPY BLOOM” in the Riviera!  SPECIAL VIEWING on Saturday April 6 10:00-Noon.

The Riviera Garden Club invites all Rivierans to stop by & see the “Super Poppy Bloom” at Colinas Circle, located at the stop sign corner of Calle Mayor & Camino de las Colinas.  This garden project is on City property and had been woefully neglected for years.

The Riviera Garden Club & it’s Civic Beautification Committee received permission in 2009 to take it over.  The City provided and installed the three magnificent boulders which are the gardens’ centerpiece.  The rest of the work was handled by four tenacious women, namely Ruth Vogel, Wendy Tsuji, Linda Rosenfeld & Jeannie Brown — over all these years they have created a lovely drought tolerant garden.

Poppy seeds from Theodore Payne were scattered a few years ago and with the recent rain deluge this year the bloom is lovely.  See it before it fades!   However, the underlying garden is very colorful year round & still growing.  You all may come by at any time but on Saturday, April 6 from 10-12 Garden Club members will be available to answer any questions.
