Anza-Borrego Wildflower Report 12/4/13

Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association has a new wildflower report for December 3 and 4, 2013:

December 4, 2013 very nice Chuparosa blooming along the Narrows Earth Trail.

December 3,2013 We took an easy hike today to Big Springs, just 1.7 miles in length.  The area burned in 2012 so don’t wear your best clothes!  You can still see the actual spring; before too long it will all grow back and you will not be able to reach it so easily.

Today we saw Parish’s Golden-Eyes, Desert Mallow, Rose Desert Mallow, Wedgeleaf Draba,  White Nightshade, Boundary Goldenbush, and Western Jimson Weed. The combination of fire and rain have made this a good place for flowers this time of year.

The Rose Desert Mallow may be more rare in the park, at least we haven’t seen it yet before this. I personally like the Wild Cucumber even as they are 1/2 year old. Western Jimson Weed, seen mostly white, this one over here is more colorful.,
