On Tuesday April 9th we drove to Carlsbad to see the ocean and have lunch at one of our favorite restaurants. It was an overcast day but the temperature was nice and you didn't need a jacket. We took a nice walk and enjoyed listening to the waves.
We also stopped over at The Flower Fields which are in bloom for about two months each year. They are done blooming by Mother's Day. They are Ranunculus flowers. The postcard below shows you an aerial view of what it can look like.
We picked up a bunch of fresh cut white ones to bring home. They will bloom for about 10 days.
Here is my post from 2012 where we went into the fields.
