It's the super bloom!

A colorful array of wildflowers are popping up in California's Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.

Why is this such a big deal?

See images of the super bloom:

It hasn't happened in 12 years.

The Anza Borrego Desert National History Association is posting updates like these showing the purple verbenas, desert dandelions, brown-eyed primroses,desert sunflowers, and evening primroses.

But if you want to check it out, you will have to hurry up.

State park representatives say the bloom may not last long due to winds and caterpillars in the area.

It will probably just last a week or so.
