Anza-Borrego: It's Go Time, Flower People

The desert expanse is starting to pop with hues aplenty.

    Wildflowers are making a showing in Anza-Borrego State Desert Park.

    "YEAR OF THE LILY": The Anza-Borrego Foundation says that 2016 "is shaping up to be the 'Year of the Lily'!" Fun stuff for lily lovers out there, but there's more to enjoy among the crags and oases of the vast park. Desert dandelions and pincushions are other seasonal show-offs, and desert sunflowers have been known to do their spectacular thing come the close of winter. Some flowery destinations involve a little getting-there planning -- four-wheel drive and such may be necessary -- but a stop by the visitor's center in Borrego Springs can help the floral fan sort out where can be gotten to with the most ease (or adventure, if you prefer). But it isn't a long moment for our desert wildflowers; if you're going to get out to see them, well, best get got, as the saying sometimes goes. The clock waits for no one, nor does one of the Golden State's most unusual, and beloved, phenomena.
