Wildflower Season Hits Anza Borrego

29 02 2008

Visitors to Anza Borrego State Park are in for a treat this time of the year. Park botanists are predicting the peak of the wildflower season will happen in the first two weeks of March.

This vast desert park, located east of San Diego, California has had 4.38 inches of rainfall since July 1st. “Though still below normal, the rain has been perfectly timed and of the gentle, soaking sort that gives us hope for a good wildflower season,” says the park’s website.

The Anza Borrego State Park covers a massive area of Southern California, reaching the Mexican-American border. Those flower-hunters planning on visiting the park would be advised to check out the Wildflower Report which will inform them of the best areas to catch a glimpse of these beauties.
