SEOUL, May 6 (Yonhap) -- Seondo, Sinan county, South Jeolla Province, an island of daffodils, is full of California poppies.

In Seondo, the California poppies, are in full bloom where the messengers of the spring, the daffodils have set.

"Yellow California Poppies are in full bloom on 12ha, blending with the blue sky and sea of Seondo so beautifully, as if the entire island was painted with yellow paint," said an official from Sinan county.

Along with daffodils, the county planted California poppies, Golden Waves (Coreopsis basalis), Marvel-of-peru (Mirabilis jalapa ) and many more to make Seondo an island that blooms in all four seasons.

In 2022, Seondo was selected as one of the 9 islands to visit in Spring (Best Photos) by the Ministry of the Interior and Safety.
