“The Earth Laughs in Flowers”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Its been a rainier than usual winter in Los Angeles this year. It’s mid-march, and the forecast is showing multiple days of rain over the next 10 days. Last week there was a nice break from all the rain, and with the return of sunshine, I joined my friend and blogger Anna Boudinot on a day trip to visit Anza-Borrego Desert, State Park.
We’ve both been eager to see California’s Super Bloom, we drove down Interstate 15 and made our first stop to see the poppy fields at Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore. It was much more crowded than I would have expected it to be midmorning on a Wednesday. Even with the traffic and crowds, the super bloom of poppies did not disappoint and should not be missed.From Walker Canyon, we drove further away from the city and into the desert. As we approached Anza-Borrego, we found ourselves surrounded by a sea of rocks as well as a super bloom of colorful flowers and cacti. Now, I may be more of a beach bum kind of gal, but I found myself captivated by the stunning desert scenery. The earth is laughing in flowers and should not be missed. I encourage you to pack a picnic, hop in the car and take a day trip to admire and enjoy this years super bloom. You can find more information here on how to see California’s 2019, Super Bloom.
