Every year, flower-gazers marvel at a dramatic marvel at a phenomenon: a dry, brown, and seemingly barren landscape metamorphoses into a breath-taking floral wonderland. The magician behind this seemingly sudden change is the spring rain, which allows dormant seeds to germinate and erupt into the surface, blossoming in phenomenal brilliance. Yellow, pink, orange and purple carpets of the color spread as far as the eye can see. The flower season is rain-dependent. The spring bloom may occur between August – October depending on rainfall patterns.
