“The desert will rejoice, and flowers will bloom in the wilderness. The desert will sing and shout for joy.”
According to Chilean meteorologists, more than 19mm rain fell last month in the Atacama desert of Chile. That is amazing taking into account that the driest place on Earth normally receives less than 12 mm (0.47 in) of rain / year.
Moreover, beginning of the month, a rare snowfall covered parts of the Atacama desert in Chile…
And like I forecast, those areas are experiencing a major desert bloom, with thousands of multicolor flowers blossoming.
The flowering desert phenomenon, known as ‘desierto florido’ in Chile, occurs between the months of September and November in years when rainfall is unusually high. The last major event occurred in 2015.

Normally, the Atacama Desert receives less than 12 mm (0.47 in) of rain a year (the driest place on Earth)…
And such a desert flowering event is actually an amazing sight! Check below by yourself:

El sitio más árido de la Tierra es el DESIERTO DE ATACAMA, Chile; pero de vez en cuando, cada 6-7 años, se cubre con un manto de flores.
El fenómeno se conoce como “desierto florido” y ya lo estudiaron los botánicos españoles del S XVII.
Y en estos días está ocurriendo pic.twitter.com/SlNCpxl1gA

Hoy estuve visitando el desierto florido en el sector travesía, a pocos kilómetros de Copiapó. Siempre es maravilloso verlo. pic.twitter.com/12WfMr1wxd

The desert flowering has already begun but will reach its maximum early October 2021 according to officials. This year, the phenomenon that occurs only every 6-7 years, could turn very big… The last unprecedented ‘desierto florido’ occurred in 2015. Here some amazing pictures… [Emol]
“The desert will rejoice, and flowers will bloom in the wilderness. The desert will sing and shout for joy; it will be as beautiful as the Lebanon Mountains and as fertile as the fields of Carmel and Sharon. Everyone will see the LORD’s splendour, see his greatness and power. Give strength to hands that are tired and to knees that tremble with weakness. Tell everyone who is discouraged, “Be strong and don’t be afraid! God is coming to your rescue, coming to punish your enemies.” The blind will be able to see, and the deaf will hear. The lame will leap and dance, and those who cannot speak will shout for joy. Streams of water will flow through the desert; the burning sand will become a lake, and dry land will be filled with springs. Where jackals used to live, marsh grass and reeds will grow. There will be a highway there, called “The Road of Holiness”. No sinner will ever travel that road; no fools will mislead those who follow it. No lions will be there; no fierce animals will pass that way. Those whom the LORD has rescued will travel home by that road. They will reach Jerusalem with gladness, singing and shouting for joy. They will be happy for ever, for ever free from sorrow and grief.” Isaiah 35:1-10
