Oct. 2, 2012. More fall flowers in Anza-Borrego! We received a report that Borrego Palm Canyon now has flowers to be seen along the trail. The late summer rains have really created an unexpected surprise in many areas. Among the flowers listed in the report are Bush Monkeyflower, California Fuschia, Trailing Windmills, and Scarlet Spiderling. These were all reported in the vicinity of the first palm oasis.
