Summer in Spring


It's been so warm this week, feels like summer already. (well, a mild and lovely summer, which isn't really how summer in So Cal is) We've been spending most of our time outdoors. Today we visited the Carlsbad Flower Fields. It was beautiful and has fields of my all time favorite flowers, ranunculus. We rode in a wagon pulled by a tractor to tour the fields which was a lot of fun. Aside from a lousy experience with a maze,( I remember now why I hated mazes as a kid) and bad diaper rash on my boy's booty ( the flowers must have blanketed the stench of a dirty diaper), it was a good day. Tomorrow we are headed to the beach!

;) Ranunculas are my favorite too. God is so amazing. What a lovely spot- I'm glad you've been enjoying the weather- up here in OC it has been yucky and muggy but is finally starting to cool off!! What a great place to visit!

Oh it's so hot here. But I live in the inland empire, so there you go.

I love ranunculas too, they are my second favorite flower (after tulips).

Your boy is just so handsome.

Hey, who knew ranunculus flowers are so many peoples' favorite-- count me it too! I have been enjoying the gentle warmth, and wish it would be this way all summer long. Fun pictures!
