Cactus from today in Anza-Borrego State Park, California.
After spending many months in a black and white world – winter in Alaska – seeing anything green just look amazing!
Speaking of green, many area of Anza-Borrego are really green right now – and they received another half an inch of rain here just yesterday! Even before yesterday’s rain, this was reported in the Borrego Sun;
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Ranger Steve Bier reported the area is “certainly looking good” for a spring wildflower crop, he said predicting it could arrive as early as late February. Some plants in Borrego Palm Canyon, he said are just “waiting to go”.
I must admit, we are here a bit early, I saw very few flowers today – but you can tell there should be some great areas showing in the next few weeks!
