Normally in Carlsbad, California there is nothing sweeter than the
But this lovely flower,
the Giant Tecolote Ranunculus,
is crazy in bloom right now
The annual rite of Spring at this flower farm includes 50 acres of flowers,
although it looks like infinity and beyond. I couldn't see the end of this field
and I can't even imagine how many blooms there might be at the moment.
When you walk up to the top of the field
you can see a lovely view of the ocean.
And it is sweet, at this field of dreams, where hundreds of sweet peas
form a maze to walk through.
In addition to acres of ranunculus blooms, there is a greenhouse of cymbidium orchids also on display.
And I have to say,
even though there weren't nearly as many orchids as there were ranunculus
This is Garden Envy.
Wow, what a beautiful rainbow of color! Love that ranunculus.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by! JeannineDelete
Hi Jeannine, even though we are living for four years now in San Diego, I have never been to the flower fields in Carlsbad. Your post certainly is inspiring to change that :-)! I didn't know that they were also growing Sweet Peas there and the cymbidium orchids exhibition is another great attraction, too!ReplyDelete
Hi Christina, I have only gone a few times myself in more than twenty years but it is an amazing sight! In fact, for you especially they have a test rose garden that you would probably be interested in. And, you can always combine the visit with a trip to the outlet mall right next to it. Oh, and you exit literally into the Armstrong Garden Center! Could be an expensive trip! JeannineDelete
