Bringing Some Joy to Your Day from Carlsbad

Bringing Some Joy to Your Day

from the Carlsbad Flower Fields

 

The Carlsbad Flower Fields are a joy to behold every year, from March 1 through Mother's Day.

 

This year is a bit different due to the coronavirus, with the venue closing on March 17th until further notice.

 

Carlsbad Flower Fields March 2020

 

But we can still enjoy the fields by looking down from Armada Drive (with plenty of room to maintain appropriate social distancing but still take photos and videos!). My wife and I went out today to do just that, on a gorgeous day with beautiful ocean views in the distance.

 

What a treat to enjoy 50 acres of ranunculas  - I hope you enjoy them as well. In these challenging times we have to remember to take care of our personal well-being, and enjoying nature is a wonderful way to do that.

Hi Joe Pryor 

It was wonderful to see and my first view since they opened and the flowers started blooming.

Hope all is well with you and your wife!

Hi Sheila Anderson 

Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed them...they are quite a sight, and perhaps even more enjoyable right now given we have been hunkered down so much.

Thank you, Jeff for sharing this with us. I can remember your photos from previous years and love seeing all of the different colors.

Hello Jeff - Mother Nature provides another "WOW" moment.  

Posted by Michael Jacobs, Los Angeles Pasadena 818.516.4393 11 days ago

Seeing beautiful flowers definitely brings joy to our lives and hopefully everyone is taking time to smell the roses even though everything is shutting down around us.

Posted by Brian England, MBA, GRI, REALTOR® Real Estate in East Valley AZ (Arizona Focus Realty) 11 days ago

Hi Jeff... this would be a treat to see... and I'm happy that you and your wife were able to "indulge." Thanks for sharing the beautiful scene.

Jeff,

Thank you for the lovely pictures, I never tire of flowers.  I walked by some of our flower fields yesterday.  A

Thanks Kathy Streib  I enjoy them every year, but somehow this year seeing them was even more pleasurable. And like so many businesses no doubt they are losing plenty of money.

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) 11 days ago

Indeed James Dray  Mother Nature is pretty amazing when we take time to enjoy.

Jeff

Wayne Martin 

I'm glad we can still enjoy them without visiting, and clearly plenty of other people were doing the same thing. I feel badly for the business, though - they had lots of events planned and they usually have lots of visitors. Lots of businesses are suffering right now I think.

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) 11 days ago

I'm being careful and staying away from people Barbara Todaro !

Hope all is well there!

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) 11 days ago

The fields are definitely worth seeing Michael Jacobs  Mother Nature did a great job  yesterday with the flowers and the weather. I'm enjoying the sun - we are due more rain later this week!

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) 11 days ago

Everyone looks great here right now Brian England becuase of all the rain. And we are due more this week.

It's definitely a time to stop and smell the roses and whatever Mother Nature is offering.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hi Nina Hollander 

It was a treat to get out (and still be able to avoid people) to enjoy the flowers and sunshine.

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) 11 days ago

Ron and Alexandra Seigel 

I enjoy them as well and right now things are pretty lush and green, given all the rain we've had.

Jeff

Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) 11 days ago

Jeff even in times like this, we can still enjoy the beauty that is around us.

Posted by George Souto, Your Connecticut Mortgage Expert (George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages) 11 days ago

Jeff, what a gorgeous view, and cannot wait unless we see some color around here too.

Jeff Dowler, CRS - your photograph has a natural 3-D effect that is absolutely stunning and beautiful!!! I hope sellers realize that when hiring you, you create the most creative and interesting marketing for their benefit too. And you successfull sell!!! 

Posted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) 10 days ago

Hi George Souto 

So true. And perhaps in these times it's even more important to appreciate the beauty around us. Spending most of our time at home can be a challenge!

Good morning Jeff Dowler, CRS - Wayne is right.  We have nature and this beautiful day to take our minds off things.
