Protected advertising

An artist, Sean Click, made a set of McDonald's golden arches on the side of a California highway by planting poppy seeds. Once they came up, it seemed like something that the DOT should get rid of as some form of unauthorized advertising.  But, it turns out that they can't.  The poppies are a protected species in California and the agency is not allowed to kill or remove them.
