The Flower Fields

When we moved to California I thought that I would be going to the beach all the time. But life gets in the way and all of a sudden you realize that you do not get to places that you say you will all that often. Sometimes it takes visitors to remind you what is in your backyard so to speak.

My Sister came to visit for a week. It was a much needed break for both of us. We went to the beach, three in fact. We went to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl Flea Market.  I finally had someone who likes to walk so we walked… the Back Bay a few times and Balboa Island.

She was a willing participant to drive an hour away to see flowers.

Her last full day here we drove to Carlsbad to see The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch. Fields of beautiful Ranunculus blooms, Tecolote Giant Ranunculus to be exact!. It is early in the season but it was still breathtaking.

I love these orange ones standing proud!

When you walk to the top of the fields you can see out to the ocean.

This view will be amazing when they are all  in bloom.
Rows and rows of color. Can you imagine what it must look like from the air? I would love to go back in a few more weeks when the fields are at their peak… I may have to start the bribes now!

Mary Beth,
I just found your business card in my purse. I have no recollection of how I came to have it! So I checked out your site - wonderful, so fun, colorful! I am going to send the link to my great friend in HI who is also a survivor and is also working in collage. If you know why I have your card, email and tell me!!!
