LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. (AP) — Southern California’s dry winter isn’t good for wildflowers and that’s OK with officials in the city of Lake Elsinore where last spring’s “superbloom” of poppies drew huge crowds. Riverside County parks official Dustin McLain tells The Press-Enterprise the chances of a superbloom in Walker Canyon this year are small because January was dry and February has started off the same way. Lake Elsinore Mayor Brian Tisdale is hoping the big bloom doesn’t occur because of its overwhelming impact on the community. Last March, throngs of people flocked to Walker Canyon, jamming Interstate 15 for miles in both directions.
