Acres of ranunculus. So pretty I kind of can't take it. If you ever find yourself driving through Carlsbad, California between March and May you must stop and visit The Flower Fields. The farm cuts up a hill, in stripes of color for what feels like miles. Just as amazing as the tulip fields in Holland, looking down from the hilltop you see a rainbow in flowers fading into the Pacific. It was on the verge of rain all morning, so we had beautiful light and got great pictures. They also have the most enchanting European playground. Nearby are U-pick strawberry fields (also in season) and plenty of flower stands to bring the beauty home.
