Oh, the hills are alive with the beauty of flowers. You know I really am singing those words in my mind to the tune of “Oh, the hills are alive with the sound of music”. I often attribute songs to occurrences, or a single word or sentence conjures up a great song from long ago, but the classic goes so well with the Flower Fields.
The Flower Fields have been open since early March of this year, but we didn’t get to visit until the end of March, but to make up for it, we got a season pass. Now, we can visit an unlimited number of times until the season is over which I think will be the beginning of May.
Me and my little girl Chandra love visiting the Flower Fields in Carlsbad, CA – only 20 minutes drive away from where we live in San Diego. Just before my oldest daughter Niki went back to college, we were shopping at the nearby Outlet Mall on Paseo Del Norte, and the Flower Fields overlooks this outdoor shopping mall. Well, Niki and my son Luca did not want to go to the Flower Fields yet again as they put it….I have taken them various times in the past, and can’t understand why they would not want to go. However, I did drag them close enough to get them into a few of the pictures, but they are not quite in the Fields themselves. You will see Chandra and me about a week later on March 27, 2016 at the Fields, and then we visited again just yesterday on April 9th.
Here are some pictures:
And yes, I got the season pass for me and Chandra. It cost me a total of $46, but I have already been there twice, and if I go at least two times more, I have more than got my money worth out of it. Besides, it’s a great place to take a walk, and get in some healthy exercise, then top it off with the delicious out of this world strawberry milkshake. Both me and Chandra got one each, and they were $5 each, but really worth it.
So get to the Flower Fields before it closes in May, and before the flowers wither away. They are too spectacular to be not seen. Remember, the hills are alive with the flowers of beauty, or did I say with the beauty of flowers?
The Flower Fields in Carlsbad are blooming beautiful! Pardon my English, but I had to say it – the fields are beautiful! Blooming with beauty.
I will not share too many pictures here, as you can see my other posts. Remember, it’s not that bad in Carlsbad – in fact, it’s quite beautiful!
Here’s me and my little girl, Chandi.
Today, was March 14th, but it was quite a hot day. There weren’t the usual crowds, I think everyone knew there was a heat wave, and not too many people wanted to be out in the heat. However, the heat doesn’t bother me, and Chandra is a good sport.
The Windmill, which is now part of Friday’s Restaurant can be seen from the Flower Fields, it’s actually just across the street. I think it goes very well with flowers, it’s kind of like Holland – flowers and windmills everywhere, so whoever designed Carlsbad knew what they were doing.
This little one is my Princess Of The Flower Fields, I think she definitely suits the title.
Isn’t this cute? This is situated close to the children’s playground at the Flower Fields.
After all that walking around, guess who wants the Strawberry Lavender Milkshake she’s been waiting for a whole year? Little Chandi! She was so happy to finally get one.
Well, to next time and I hope you have a blooming beautiful weekend!
