Wordless Wednesday: Fuschia-Pink Flowers Brighten the Day

Wordless Wednesday

Fuschia-Pink Flowers to Brighten the Day in Carlsbad

 

Fuschia-pink flowers in Carlsbad

 

It's been a gorgeous day here in Carlsbad, perhaps the nicest we've had in a few weeks - high 60s by the beach, almost 80 inland. It was especially welcome after the chilly and rainy weather we had all last week until Sunday evening when the storm finally headed east.

 

I was on my way to run an errand in Carlsbad Village - in the car only - and had to stop to snap this photo and enjoy the beauty for a minute. These flowers, a plot roughly 15' by 30', positively glowed in the bright sunlight.

Jeff- two things I've learned about Carlsbad from your posts...the beautiful wall murals and absolutely gorgeous flowers.

Morning Jeff.

My wife would enjoy that photo, as do I.  She'll know what they are, but until now it was just another flower to me.

Hi Endre Barath, Jr.  They are pretty common around here.

As best I can tell online, they are called a creeping shrubby ice plant. But don't quote me on that.

The color is pretty amazing, isn't it Ron and Alexandra Seigel ?

Hi George Souto  - it's a good time to be enjoying nature when and where we can.

Wow, that is certainly vibrant and the color can certainly be blinding if one stares at it too long.

Jeff, what a beautiful photo, and I would have to IMMEDIATELY stop the car to snap a shot too.    We have an all-white landscape with more snow today, and it is FREEZING.

Hi Jeff,  Thanks for sharing this picture of these beautiful flowers.  We still have snow on the ground - it'll be a month or so before we get any flowers.

Posted by Bob Crane, Forestland Experts! 715-204-9671 (Woodland Management Service / Woodland Real Estate, Keller Williams Fox Cities) about 2 months ago

Good morning Jeff - like Kathy Streib says, you certainly have rows of those beautiful flowers in Carlsbad.
