We are officially in the season of full blooms and I am happy to report that after living in San Diego for almost seven years now I can finally cross “The Flower Fields” off my bucket list!

That’s right! I had the extreme pleasure of visiting one of the world’s top flower fields last week and let me tell you – this place is absolutely RANUNCULUS with beauty ;)

For those of you who are not familiar with The Flower Fields, for ten weeks each spring, there is a local coastal farm in Carlsbad, California that grows 50-acres of giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers.

It transforms a rolling hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean into a solid landscape of vibrantly-banded color.

And we all know how much this Lucky Little Mustardseed loves her color :)

It’s by far one of the most gorgeous places I have ever been.

The entire experience really made me stop to enjoy the moment set before me and the artistry that Mother Nature has to offer.

So much so, “Pure Imagination” kept running through my mind over and over again = come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination . . . take a look and you’ll see into your imagination.

I mean talk about the ultimate happy place?! For those interested in a visit, the Flower Fields are located halfway between Orange County and San Diego and are open from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. daily through Mother’s Day, May 8th :) I highly recommend the trip and am honestly a little peeved with myself for not seeing them until now. It’s a MUST see!
