Super Bloom Coming?
The chance of a rare Super Bloom of wildflowers this spring just got better! The autumn rainstorm (0.70 inches) that just hit Death Valley is a key factor for the early sprouting of annual wildflowers seeds and the predicted El Niño weather pattern should bring regular rain this winter to keep the plants growing and blooming. This is the same situation we saw with the Super Blooms of 1998 and 2005, and it is possible we could see a repeat of those mind-blowing wildflower displays. What is a Super Bloom? Take a look at these photos from 2005 and you’ll understand why we are getting excited. (avv)
