I was in DV about 2 weeks ago and some areas were already on the decline wildflower wise, so I'm surprised it's still generally so good now. A desert area never has carpets as dense as (for example) those California poppy carpets that you get some years in some (non desert) areas, but DV did indeed have lots and lots of areas of pretty good carpets of those yellow daisy type flowers. If you shoot with your tripod low from just the right position, those carpets do look quite dense and they might cover quite a wide view right from your feet to the horizon; truly amazing and for DV a once in a life time experience. The last time was about 50 years ago!
If you look around you can also find occasional large patches of other kinds of flowers besides those daisy types that are common everywhere. There's a smaller yellow kind that grows very close to the ground and there's a couple different kinds of blue/purple types that don't ever form huge dense carpets, but are still quite impressive and rewarding for the photographer. If you like photographing small patches of flowers without necessarily a very interesting background, you'll be in heaven in DV.
A particular recommendation: The Artist Drive road is closed due to massive flood damage. If you're in good hiking shape and you have the time, take a day and walk it (13 miles for the whole loop, including 3.5 miles on the paved road to get back to your starting point). I was actually glad that road was closed. You see so much more walking and it was nice to have this maximally spectactular area to myself for a whole day. Lots and lots of fantastic wildflower clumps, patches, and occasional carpets of several kinds, but also the most colorful and interesting rock/hill/mountain formations.
If you can't get to the desert for a while any other way, why not quit your job? Your wife (husband, boss, whoever) will forgive you eventually or if not, there will be another job (relationship, whatever) coming along a lot sooner than another desert wildflower year like this. Just don't give me as a reference for the suggestion.
