Southern California is in bloom! After a dry winter, this season has brought the most spectacular array of wildflowers that nature has to offer.

Let’s take a look at why Southern California is seeing such a grand display of natural beauty.
The Causes Behind the Super Bloom
This year’s super bloom has been described as one of the most impressive floral displays in decades. The cause behind this incredible phenomenon is due to an increase in precipitation over the past few months. This, combined with cooler-than-normal temperatures, has created an environment where plants have been able to thrive like never before. In addition, because of recent conservation efforts, there have been fewer wildfires which have also contributed to the growth of vegetation throughout Southern California.
