spring has sprung

earlier this week our family took a drive to the carlsbad flower fields. the gorgeous spring flowers are in 100% bloom. it was fun to spend a couple hours leisurely walking the grounds.
the carlsbad climate is perfect for growing the ranunculus flower, and the garden is still the only ranunculus grower in the world that allows visitors to walk the fields to experience the flowers up-close.sophie had a blast discovering the beauties. that's a baby in the lower right corner.
she was so curious about the blooms, it was hard to get her to look at the camera.

all said, i'm pretty sure she enjoyed herself.

the gardens are open until may 10, 2009. while you're at it, you can stop by the carlsbad outlet mall and make a day out of it. good stuff!
