It has been a few years since we last went. They are a beautiful as ever.
If you've never heard of them, they are fields of ranunculus flowers in Carlsbad, CA
Every spring they produce thousands of beautiful flowers that bloom every spring. The fields are so large they can be seen from the freeway driving by.
Ranunculus is one of my favorite flowers. It is second only to Tulips. Roses would be a close third. I miss growing some of the flowers we were able to grow when we lived in a downstairs apartment.
The flowers are grown in rows of color. Joe's favorite is the multi colored row, which is is standing in front of.
I decided to forego the collages and just post all of them. You all don't mind scrolling down a bit, do you? :)
Every single row we walked by I would say "Oh, orange is my favorite", only to walk by the red ones and say "Actually the red are my favorite", and so on until we had gone through all of the colors. It was cracking Joe up. They are all just so beautiful! So vibrant.
The fields are in such a beautiful area, with a view of the ocean atop the hill
Flowers are Love's truest language
Flowers match my shirt!
Be like the flower, turn your faces to the sun
They had a greenhouse with orchids too. We killed the orchid my Dad got us. I don't know how. Usually Joe is very good at keeping things alive.

They had a maze made out of sweet peas. Sweet peas have the most beautiful scent. You might even say it is aMAZEing. LOL.
After much deliberation it was decided that the coral colored were, in fact, my favorite.
Where flowers, bloom, so does hope

They had beautiful roses too. Love the color and the fluted edges on this one
I WILL be making on of these. I just need to find an old chair. It's so cute!
More stunning roses
Happiness is to hold flowers in both hands
It was a fun day!
