just learned about superblooms, which is when dormant wildflower seeds germinate at the same time in absurdly high numbers
@kiosk Look up Namaqualand, an area in South Africa where the desert gets superblooms :D It's a few hours north of here but I've never been, the blooms are so difficult to predict it's hard to organise going to view them.
@kiosk I had the oportunity to see it in Chile, the southern part of Atacama desert gets some rain every decade or so, and when that happens all dormant seeds germinate and bloom at the same time. Breathtaking.
They've missed an opportunity by not using these as the xp background, like, honestly this is really beautiful
@kiosk I got to see one in California a few years back. It wasn't as impressive as these, but it was still really cool!
This always reminds me of a nice story where Donald Duck tries to find an extremely rare flower in a desert.
