For the first time in 10 years, the American Death Valley - the hottest point in North America - has been covered with bright colors of flowering plants. Death Valley is an intermountain depression in the area of ​​the Mojave Desert and the Great Basin in the western United States in the state of California. The average maximum temperature in July reaches +46 ° C, at night - up to +31 ° C. The coolest time is from the end of November to February (+ 5 ... + 20 ° C). During this period, it rains in the Valley and there are slight frosts. And in July 1913, the world temperature record was set here: +56.7 ° C.

From time to time, many deserts on earth are covered with flowers: the wind introduces seeds into the soil that are waiting for precipitation and other favorable weather conditions. Recently, the arid desert of Atacama bloomed in Chile, the second time this year.

The stormy flowering of the Death Valley, observed in February 2016 for the first time in the last 10 years, is caused by torrential rains that hit it last fall. The water gave dry ground, and in spring, with the increase in daylight, the plants began to grow rapidly.
