Yeah. RIOT OF COLORFUL BLOSSOMS.

That’s the phrase used by the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Wildflower Report (PDF) for this week. And worry not, fellow procrastinators – because of the recent cooler temperatures, they now expect peak bloom to be the second or third week of March – so there’s still time to plan the trip south.

The Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association’s page has a few pictures of some of the early bloomers along Coyote Canyon, Henderson Canyon Road, and the Elephant Trees Trail. Definitely worth a visit if you want to get motivated for the road trip!
