California's Super bloom that year was one of the best in recent decades. Thanks to an unusually rainy year in California, almost the entire state was blooming with dozens of species of ephemeral native spring wildflowers. Parts of the normally arid Southern California landscape experienced an incredibile super bloom, a once in a ten-year occurrence. Few sites are more memorable than seeing with your eyes brilliant colors and smelling the fragrant fields of California poppies and canterbury bells stretching for miles across the green verdant hills. The cumulous clouds were rolling across the landscape making for the perfect picture.
