El Paso will celebrate its poppy bloom on Saturday at the El Paso Museum of Archeology’s annual Poppies Festival.
“This year’s bloom is considered the best in the last three years,” Museum Director Jeff Romney says.
The wildflowers are in full bloom throughout the region, accenting the city’s Chihuahuan Desert slopes with brilliant sunset hues of orange and yellow. The show usually begins in late January and lasts through early April. With spring rains, the bloom can extend through mid-May.
