Show & Tell Friday - May 1, 2009



Please visit Kelli at Theres no Place Like Home for more Show and Tell Friday!

This week I am sharing some of the flowers my Mom and I saw last weekend at the Flower Fields in Carlsbad CA. We decided to have a Mom and Daughter day to rekindle our bond, and spend some time enjoying one another’s company. This was a day that we will both treasure for years to come.

The Flower Fields specialty is Ranunculus. These beautiful flowers are just a byproduct of the marketplace. The fields are actually grown for bulb distribution, but for 3 months a year the hillside is practically painted with a spectacular array of colors.




My favorite part of visiting the flower fields was the amazing rose garden they have. I have never seen such variety of color, smells, or names.





They also feature an Artist Garden that reminded me of what you might find out at a French countryside Chateau.



It is truly amazing how all of these flowers can take you to so many places and dreams all over the world!
