The state of California in the United States is experiencing a brilliant super bloom. Wildflowers have laid a colourful carpet across Anza Borrego Desert State Park, the largest state park in California near Borrego Springs and in different places of the state. The slopes of Walker Canyon near Lake Elsinore in California is covered in a layer of bright orange poppies making it look straight out of dreamland.

Seems two years of continuous rains made the dormant seeds to burst open around the Spring season putting up a vibrant show in the area. The cold weather has further provided more moisture to the ground helping in the steady growth of the flowering plants. The flowers have also sprouted in the regions between San Diego and the Salton. 5 Beautiful Flowers That You Can Eat for Numerous Health Benefits.

Most flowers are in the colours of pink, purple, yellow and white. You could see everything from bright pink Bigelow's Monkeys, purple Sand Verbena, yellow Evening Primrose and white desert lilies. In California, super blooms generally happen once every 10 years, however, years-long drought conditions had reduced the phenomenon recently. Udyanotsav 2019: Flowers Lay a Beautiful Carpet at Rashtrapati Bhavan's Mughal Gardens in Delhi.
