Anza-Borrego Wildflowers 3/15/18

Borrego Wildflowers reports

3/12/2018 No rain in the desert, some area’s did get rain like Culp Valley, Collins valley.
3/15/2018 The unexpected smell of Creosote, a little bit of rain 0.02 in Palm Canyon and almost half an inch in Ranchita.

Some areas will get a below average bloom, with a lot of very tiny blooming plants. Peak bloom somewhere in April
The Coyote canyon area may be already be past peak bloom, with a lot of plants at the end of bloom. There are places with good germination, so the rain may give them another boost.

03/12/2018 Indian Canyon Bennis Bowl A revisit to Indian canyon with names like Valley of the Thousand Springs and Dennis Bowl.
In the middle of Indian Canyon there is a (seasonal) creek that disappears and resurfaces a couple of times.
A fork leads into a canyon with Bennis Bowl, a canyon dotted with palm trees. The springs must be rather deep as there is no apparent surface water.
