Wild Weather = Wild Flowers!

April 30, 2017

There’s a saying, “April showers, bring May showers.” Well, it couldn’t be more true for California, except it wasn’t just April showers but a very long winter of storms and lots and lots of spring showers! Although some might be tired of the rain, it was a welcome sight for many given the many years of severe drought. What else happened as a result of all this rain? A super bloom of wild flowers across the state! We’re talking about blankets of wild flowers like the poppy, primrose, and lily in areas where bursts of flowers are rarely seen—places like the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park where temperatures range from 107-125 degrees Fahrenheit!
