This winter produced an unprecedented amount of rain and snow in California. While the storms and flood waters off the West Coast were disruptive, and even deadly, there is a rainbow at the end of the rainy season.

Only 9% of the state remains in a drought. That is down from 99% in October. This is a significant change for the state of California that has endured an extreme drought since 2020.

Reservoirs have been replenished, and with the state rehydrated, another positive thing is coming from the drought’s end. Known for its wildflower blooming season, California is expecting a bigger and brighter year on nature trails.

Across the many hills and valleys in the country’s biggest state are vivid colors scattered from a blooming wildflower season. The state is calling it a “superbloom.”

Wildflower seeds that accumulated underground through a series of punishingly dry years are finally coming up and all blooming at once.

While the state endured a historic winter of rain, floods and feet of snow, the flowers serve as a clear sign that winter is over.
