The Flower Fields Heralding Spring

The Flower Fields Heralding SpringThe Flower Fields have been opened heralding spring and balmy weather. Soon Carlsbad will be full of picnicers, old-fashioned wagon rides and the colours of Easter eggs.

Joni Miringoff, the Flower Fields marketing director says, “For many, it’s an annual pilgrimage, especially this year when people want to stay closer to home. To me it represents rebirth and hope. Even if you arrive in a crabby mood, you leave happy.”

The guests can even take a tractor-driven ride across the fields to soak in the sights. Approximately, 15 to 25 million flowers are expected to bloom with their peak being nearing the end of March.

The sight most likely to draw visitors is the giant ranunculus Tecolote, growing at The Flower Fields. It was created by horticulturist Luther Gage, and is know for its bright and attractive colours, as well as its paper-like petals.
