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