Spring is just around the corner SUPER BLOOM?

In 2017, California experienced its first super bloom in nearly a decade. But, miraculously, Mother Nature decided to put on a similar show in 2018 and 2019 across the state. Now, people are wondering if she’ll do the same again in the spring of 2020.

We want to tell you, “Heck yes, the flowers are coming!” but we simply can’t — yet. However, there is one place that does have the power to predict, and that’s the Farmer’s Almanac, which says there may just be enough rain to trigger a bloom in the coming weeks.

According to the 2020 almanac, between now and Feb. 7, the Pacific Southwest will experience a slight rainy period followed by cool weather. Then, from Feb.12-20 the area will experience more rain and even potential showers. And, if that rain really comes, along with sustained cooler weather, it could trigger a bloom in March, just as it has for the last several years.

“We have received cold weather as expected for a possible super bloom or whatever you want to call it,” Chris Hon, a senior environmental scientist at the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve, told the Los Angeles Times. “If we have sustained rains to keep the poppies growing, we will likely have some type of super bloom.”
