Sometimes, new life actually does come with death. Back in March, extremely rare flooding killed at least two people in one of the driest places in the world, northern Chile. But now, the Atacama Desert has transformed into a sea of pink mallow flowers.

According to AccuWeather, the desert hardly receives any rain throughout the entire year, which obviously makes it very difficult for any vegetation to grow. So when the area was hit with historic rainfall, flower seeds that laid dormant for years were finally able to blossom.

The normally barren place is now a lush pink paradise.

But the bloom is expected to come to an end sometime in November — so either hop on a plane ASAP or settle for the photos below:
