The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch are in Full Bloom

March 29, 2019

 

I was out running errands and drove by the Flower Fields on a gorgeous day yesterday, and decided to stop for some photos. Most of the parking was taken along Armada Drive, which runs along the top of the hill overlooking the Fields and offers spectacular views of the Flower Fields and the ocean beyond.

There were dozens of people out with their cameras, as well as a plein air painter, capturing their own views and selfies. And plenty of visitors in the fields and enjoying riding the antique tractors.

 

 

The fields are in full bloom and spectacular right now. They are also the influence for the upcoming 3rd Annual Petal to Plate event in Carlsbad April 4 - 14 offering floral-inspired drinks, brews, food and spa treatments at some of Carlsbad best venues.

Those fields are stunningly beautiful.  I think many of us see sights like that one as a sight for sore eyes, after a wild winter.

Hi Bob "RealMan" Timm 

Yep I get that. I love this view..but interestingly the flowers have no scent. And sitting there would be even better if no one else were around to interrupt!

It's pretty amazing to see close up, or from the nearby roads Barbara Todaro  We moved to Carlsbad in late April in 2005 and got to see them. We were amazed!!

Jeff

They are truly beautiful Hannah Williams 

Sheri Sperry - MCNE®  Actually there is no scent to these flowers, it's the vibrant colors that are so impressive.

Hi Kathy Streib - I so enjoy seeing them and also sharing them with others. The photos are pretty good but it's hard to capture the full beauty. NOthing like seeing them in person.

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (Solutions Real Estate ) 6 months ago

George Souto  And I hope it's soon for you!

Endre Barath, Jr.  I write about them every year...just can't resist, and the fields are such a treat to see over and over.

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (Solutions Real Estate ) 6 months ago

Wow - great photos, Jeff!  Endre Barath said you had an art gallery in Cambridge. Massachusetts. I am so impressed! Are you still into the art scene here in Cali?

PS Your name is the topic of discussion in Sondra Meyer's post, so head on over!

Posted by Gwen Banta (Sotheby's International Realty) 6 months ago

Hi Sally K. & David L. Hanson Hope spring flowers head your way soon!

Sheila Anderson Glad you enjoyed them. While the photos are pretty good it's nothing like seeing these fields in person!

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (Solutions Real Estate ) 6 months ago

Thanks Grant Schneider  -  I enjoy seeing them every year.

I get that Myrl Jeffcoat The color is pretty awesome. It's an interesting transformation from brown dirt, to greenery, to brilliant color, every year!

Hi Gwen Banta 

Yes, after I left the corporate world of HR, my wife and I owned an art gallery in Cambridge, 2002 - 2004 (I also started in real estate at that time). We closed because we had decided to make the move to California in early 2005. We still collect art, and enjoy visiting galleries and museums, and have gotten to know a number of artists here. We would love to have a gallery again...perhaps some day. But it's a pretty low profit margin business and leasing retail space is so darn expensive.

I'll check out Sondra's post.

Wow.... And to think, I've still go snow in my yard.
