The Last of the Desert Wildflowers

It is with a heavy heart that I write about the last of the desert wildflowers. I understand that it is the story of the desert and the extremes of an arid climate, but it is still a dramatic and incredible feat of nature to witness the super bloom and I am sorry to see it fade. The caterpillars, wind and rising temperatures have been the doom of the blossoms and the seeds and pollen have been dispersed for yet another year. Anza Borrego Desert State Park is returning to normal, the crowds have moved on and the cry of a single Swainson’s Hawk fades in the distance.
