Amazing: California's wildflower 'super bloom' is visible from space.

An unusually dense 'super bloom' of wildflowers that has been sprouting up across California is now visible from space. Satellite images of California show colorful patches of flowers covering parts of the state. Following on from one of the wettest winters in recent memory, fields across drought-striken California have been carpeted with vivid blooms, mainly orange California poppies.

A wet winter in Southern California has led to ideal conditions for a bumper wildflower bloom. According to the National Park Service, rainfall throughout the winter and spring is essential for a good wildflower year.
