The California desert is currently experiencing an explosion of many varieties of wildflowers. Exceptional rainfall in the southwestern United States this winter has allowed plants in the Anza-Borrego State Park near San Diego to enter a spectacular flowering phase.”A very rare event” that had not happened since 1999, according to local press.

“It’s a beautiful floral year”, marveled the park on its Facebook page
. This shimmering show offered to all hikers who travel the desert should reach its peak in the middle of March, says the institution, which invites the walkers to come in the morning, the flowers closing again because of the heat during the after -midday.
Expected “super bloom” of wildflowers in the Anza-Borrego Desert within the next couple of weeks. https://t.co/e4lIvuUIqo?
