The Carlsbad Flower Fields are beginning their annual colorsplash on the hills between Palomar Airport Rd and Canon just east of I-5.
The fields are open to the public each day from 9 am to 6 pm from March 1st through May 9th.
Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors over 60, $5 for children 3-10 yrs old and 2 and under are free.
There are days set aside for special events including Photography Workshop Day, Bluegrass Day and Arts and Crafts Day to name a few.
The fields are planted so they bloom in waves, beginning with the North end. You can walk 50 acres of fields or pay an extra $5 to ride the tractor driven wagon ride.
Whatever you do, you will not be disappointed by the striking colors of the Ranunculus that are so carefully planted by seed each September, October and November. Only 1-2% of the flowers are cut each year and shipped throughout the US and Canada. The majority of the flowers are grown for the ranunculus bulbs they produce and shipped around the world from www.easytogrowbulbs.com
