The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch


I wrote, yesterday, about how the fam and I took a little trip to San Diego over the weekend. On our way back home on Sunday, we stopped off at one of my favorite places, the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch. It is the most beautiful sight during the Spring months in Southern California. I only live about 45 minutes from the fields and enjoy coming down each year. 

The weather couldn't have been better, truly, for it to be 80 and clear at the beach is always a treat. Since it was the weekend, it was super crowded, but totally worth it. An interesting fact about the fields... they do sell the flowers but the main point to growing them is to harvest the seeds. I had no idea until I overheard one of the farmers there telling a child. I thought that was really interesting. Anywho, if you're ever in the San Diego area between March and May, you should really try to stop by and have a look. The views alone are worth it! 

Have a wonderful day!
