Default To BlueRaven: blooming

Yes, the intense blooming time does not happen every spring. It depends very much on how much rain was there during preceeding winter and sometimes there is none. Also the spring time is pretty short, so actually it is very easy to miss. I tried to catch that couple of times, finally with a success, however I heard the winter after I left California was especially wet and consequently the spring after that was fantastic in the deserts, full of colors.
Usually the spring comes there around March April.
I took photos there with a analog camera, where I could not see the results immediately so it was not that easy to notice under or overexposure and repeat it as it is now with digital cameras.
I really recomment the place though.
Thanks for your comments,
