Ge t O u ts i d e Ridiculousness aside, the desire to pursue a giant field of multicolored flowers is incredibly relatable. It’s important to remember a super bloom typically occurs once every decade - we’ve been gifted abundant flowers twice in three years. Quite a few moving pieces have to align in order to facilitate the phenomenal wildflower explosion we call the super bloom. According to The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) this type of magic only happens in areas that endure abnormally dry and drought conditions. The lack of moisture kills invasive grasses that normally suffocate potential sprouts. Once the ground is properly barren, our Golden State has to experience an atypical wet winter worthy of encouraging the dormant seeds of flowering plants to come out and play. Like everything in life, nothing’s a set deal. A few flash floods and all hopes of teasing our beloved flowers to blossom at the same time is washed away.
