One of the great things about living in San Diego this time of year is that everything is in bloom and full of vivid color. There is no better example of that than the gigantic hillside of Ranunculus at the corner of Palomar Airport Rd and Paseo Del Norte in Carlsbad, located on North Coastal San Diego--famous for its perfect year-round weather. I visited the fields this past Sunday and it was a spectacular day- 80 degrees, sunny and the air was filled with the fragrant aroma of these beautiful flowers and the nearby Pacific Ocean!
The fields are at 65% of their full bloom as of today and should be at 100% by next weekend. You can get more information, read about the history and get directions by visiting their site : www.theflowerfields.com
If you get the chance, try to go in the next week or so. You will be glad you did!
