Super bloom coming to California Desert

Breath taking

"The most vibrant wildflower bloom in two decades is expected over the next week or two in the Anza-Borrego Desert, located two hours east of San Diego. The same rains that drenched San Diego this winter are turning the barren desert floor into a carpet of color.

"Since December, nearly 6 inches of rain have doused the desert — twice as much as last year. Dozens of species of wildflower plants have sprouted, and their bright colored buds are beginning to open."

You can almost hear the flowers singing, best winter rains in years. I'm finding things blooming I forgot I planted.

I saved 2 barrels of rain water from our big storm just to water my plants. They are far happier, stronger and grow larger veggies with rain water.
