Colorful Photos Capture California’s Dazzling Superbloom

After several months of devastating storms, California is witnessing a
spectacular superbloom of colorful flowers for the first time in four

Over the past few months, California has experienced a variety of
abnormally devastating weather events, from torrential rain to
horrific mudslides, as a result of 31 atmospheric river storms
affecting the state. The unusual wet weather broke California’s
yearslong record drought conditions in most of the state. After harsh
winter rains, the weather has finally settled in recent weeks,
producing a historic superbloom, which is a rare desert occurrence
that happens after an abundance of rainfall causes dormant seeds to
germinate. This year’s superbloom is so large that it can even be seen
from space. The last time California saw something close to this was
four years ago.

Spectacular photos!    :)
