The Flower Fields Are Ablaze With The Beauty of Color – Carlsbad, CA (San Diego)

Spring is in the air, flowers are everywhere!  Or should I say the hills are alive with the beauty of flowers?  These flowers are like music to my soul, and they bring joy.  They also bring much joy to my little angel, Chandi.

Here is the Princess of The Flower Fields (I nominate her for that):

Here’s Chandi dreaming of more flowers.

Here she is, ever so content with all the flowers around her.

I should tell you a little more about the Flower Fields – they mainly grow ranunculus flowers here – and the early ranunculus blossoms resembled Poppy blossoms.  Here’s a little more history on this:

Here’s some close-up pictures of the ranunculus flowers

Little kids love to come to the Flower Fields – they get to meet others their age, see fish in the little lily pond basins

They can play in the playground

They will see see hens and will even see some fresh laid eggs on the ground!

They will love taking a ride on the wagon that goes around the fields full of flowers, and have a narrated tour.  Most of all, if they are just like Chandi, they will like to be out in the fresh open air, smelling the sweet smell of Spring, and seeing flowers everywhere!

Here are the fields ablaze with color

Here are some people picking the flowers (most likely employees) – these flowers could surely brighten anyone’s home, and will likely find their way into the stores.

Who wouldn’t like to bring their little baby here, and see their face light up with joy?  Chandi’s face lit up with joy, is all the happiness I need.  Here she is once again, Princess of the Flower Fields.

Also, let me tell you where Carlsbad is in relation to San Diego…..it is a 40 minute drive up north from downtown San Diego.  Take the Highway 5 North and exit Palomar Airport Road, then make a right onto Palomar Airport Road, make a left onto Paseo Del Norte, and make a right into the Carlsbad Outlet Mall Shopping Area, and then make another right and head into the parking lot close to the Flower Fields entrance.

Prices: $11 for adults, free for kids under 3 years of age, and kids from 4 to 11 – $6

Also, don’t forget – locally grown strawberries are for sale right here at the Flower Fields, and don’t forget to try a yummy Strawberry Milkshake or one of the other scrumptious desserts made from strawberries.

Also, don’t forget to visit sometime soon, as the flowers will only be in bloom up to a certain point in April, so hurry fast and visit Carlsbad, CA – part of greater San Diego.

**This is an addition to the post.  Went back to visit again on March 30, 2013 (last week I visited on March 23rd) – there’s a big difference in just a week as far as how much the flowers have bloomed.  Here’s what they looked like today, however, these pictures were taken from a distance – we did not get right into the fields like we did last week.

      Thanks, Dilip! My little Chandi is indeed as lovely as the flowers. I appreciate your comment, and wish you a fabulous weekend. I hope you had a wonderful and Happy Holi!

  2. Sartenada says :

    Sigh. I am sure that little Chandi is more beautiful than those flower fields. What a wonderful start of day it was to me admiring the summer You have there.

    Last night is was again cold here. At morning we had 8.6ºF. Sun has power and at afternoon it is predicted to be 39.2ºF. Land is covered by snow and the lake which is from our home at the distance of 65.6ft is covered by ice and snow. Yesterday we walked on it 1½ hours. The sunshine was very bright because ice and snow are pure white. People walk, ski and skate on the lake daily. You can imagine how dogs enjoy running there.

    Thank You giving a promise of summer thru Your post.

      I’m glad you enjoyed my post. Little Chandi certainly is a beauty……and a flower among flowers. I wish I could bring the warmth of San Diego all the way to Finland for you Matti. Your description of the weather there conjures up really nice images of snow and lakes (it reminds me of last year in Alaska). Hopefully, it won’t be too long before you get better weather. I hope you have a fantastic April!
