Lack Of Rain Makes Desert Wildflower Super Blooms Unlikely This Year

Barring a miracle in the next six weeks, experts say there will be no desert wildflower “super bloom” this year. Less than one inch of rain has hit the desert floor in Borrego Springs since September. In contrast, by the end of February last year, the total was seven inches. Those six inches could translate into perhaps 500,000 fewer visitors to the desert this spring.
