After all the flooding rains in the Southwest, homes may be sliding off hillsides, streets in LA may be awash, but one thing is wonderful: the bloom of the desert wildflowers in California's southern mountains. Near the Mexico border, Anza-Borrego State Park
is famous for its desert flowers in "good years", and as you can see, this is a very good year. This photo was sent to us from our favorite roving photographer, Don Paulson, who is there taking in the big show right now.
