My wonderful Mother flew in to help Brendan and I get settled into our new home. We spent a lot of time doing just that, but we did get to venture out here and there. One thing we were able to do was to visit The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch, and I am SO glad we did. This was one of the coolest things I have ever seen. I am a self-declared, “plant lady,” and I am so excited about how easy it is to grow just about everything here. I could have just set up shop and lived in these fields — unfortunately, the flowers are only blooming and open for visitors from March- May so I had to return home, but next year you can guarantee I will be back!
To my knowledge, they harvest the flowers and bulbs to sell, but the public is able to enjoy the flowers for these few months before this happens. It was a lovely thing to take my mother to do. We went to dinner afterward in Cardiff to finish off the afternoon.
Thanks mama for flying all the way here from Ohio, all of your help, and always being up for wherever I want to take you.
all of my love,
