It’s official, Spring is here and so are the fresh blooms to go along with it!
We usually celebrate Spring with a trip to the tulip fields of Skagit County. They’re located about 30 minutes south of us and offer a display of beautiful and bright tulips, by the thousands, in color coordinated rows. The weather has been a bit too chilly and rainy to venture down to Tulip Town just yet, but we happened to be in sunny San Diego for spring break and got to go to the The Flower Fields in Carlsbad for a showing of giant ranunculus.
The Flower Fields, have been on my radar for a few years, but every time we travel to California, the timing isn’t quite right. This time though, was a different story! We were able to spend one morning of our trip out at the Flower Fields and take our time enjoying all the scenery.
Rows on rows of ranunculus greeted us upon our arrival to the Flower Fields. The colors ranged from pink and red, to yellow, orange and multi and were breathtaking to observe. The rows of blooms stretch for what feels like miles (50 acres I believe) providing such a bright and colorful backdrop for photo taking.
I’m partial to the pink varieties, but no surprise there!
The scene of the Flower fields was busy even at 10am in the morning on a Wednesday. We ended up waiting in quite a few lines to take photos in the designated areas, but it was completely it!
My girls and I enjoyed our time checking out all the different blooms and my hubby, well…he was a really good sport!
If you’re looking to visit the fields, they’re located about 25 minutes North of San Diego, in Carlsbad California. LEGOLAND is close by. Entry fees are affordable and they even have a scavenger hunt for kids and other activities like a sweet pea maze, to keep them entertained!
The highlight of our trip to The Flower Fields was definitely the scenery. Much different from the rain boots and jackets we wear when we visit the tulips in the PNW. With the ocean and palm trees in the distance, and the sun shining bright it was truly a sight to remember and an experience that I highly recommend.
Since we’re all about casual dresses, the girls and I wore pink to match the blooms and paired them with sneakers for comfort.
Since we were on vacation, we didn’t get to take any ranunculus home, but will certainly remember this experience for years to come. Now back in the PNW, I look forward to sharing deets from our trips to the Peony and Tulip farms here soon!
