happy friday + flower fields...

The Flower Fields / Carlsbad, CA

Happy Friday! Yesterday, I was on CNBC which felt very fancy and a fun thing to have gotten to experience. But now, I am READY for the weekend and to slow down just a little bit! Last weekend, my family and I went to the Flower Fields in Carlsbad, CA (just north of San Diego). My in-laws were in town, and they love gardens, so we figured we'd bring them to the biggest garden of all in a sea of ranunculus (one of my favorite flowers!). It was pretty magical...

The fields span 55 acres which mainly grow ranunculus with a small selection of other flowers in 5 of the acres. The flowers are grown partially to be cut and sold all across the country, and some are saved for the bulbs which are sold so that people can grow the flower in their own backyards as well.

This flower farm has been around for over 60 years. But it's only been in the last 20 years that it's been open to the public. They do an amazing job of setting up areas where you can see the flowers and take photos without damaging the flowers. It's truly a sight to be seen and one of my favorite things to do in the area every spring!
