Spring Is Blooming With Color
Spring is here and San Diego is the place to find it! An abundance of breezy days filled with sunshine increase the urge to wander about outdoors and you could not ask for a more breathtaking sight! Right now is the perfect time to venture into one of San Diego’s most beautiful treasures – the Flower Fields.
My family has always marveled at the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch, watching and waiting, as they grow in color. I’m happy to report that now they are in full bloom. This spectacular sight covers 50 acres and can only be found for about six weeks of the year. It marks the arrival of spring in Southern California. The gardens are open from 9a.m. to 6 p.m. everyday through May 9th and are a must-see for any age. They even have events geared for young children and wagon rides!
Today’s fields are a result of the efforts of Luther Gage, a grower who began planting seeds over 85 years ago. Mr. Gage planted ranunculus and gladiolus in every color imaginable! Other unique experiences to explore at the Flower Fields are the Miniature Rose Garden, featuring a Rose Walk of Fame, the Carlsbad Mining Company, a Sweet Pea Maze, Historic Poinsettia Display, American Flag of Flowers, and Santa’s Playground.
With special events like Bluegrass Day, Kids Day, and Red Hatter’s Rendezvous, the Flower Fields can’t help but make for a great experience. An Arts & Crafts Fair will be held two weekends in April, as well. Tickets are $10 for Adults, $9 for seniors, $5 for Children (3-10), and free for children under three.
