Poppies, Poppies. No It's Not the Emerald City but Green it Is!

Carlsbad Field of Poppies

 

Poppies in Carlsbad

 

The Carlsbad Flower Fields are coming to an end, but this field of bright orange poppies at the master planned community of Robertson Ranch is at its peak.

 

No, that's not the Emerald City in the distance, and the poppies are a different color than those that felled Dorothy and the Cowardly Lion, thanks to the Witch, as they romped toward the Wizard of Oz's home.

 

Robertson Ranch and poppy fields

 

But it'll take a bit of green to live here, with homes starting in the $800,000s and running up to about $1,600,000.

 

I'm no Wizard but I can help you buy a new Carlsbad home here if you are financially qualified and interested in a new construction home. Here are the 4 neighborhoods being built (along with 2 apartment complexs, one for seniors) at Robertson Ranch in Carlsbad.

 

The first communities are gated. Prices subject to change based on floor plan, availability, lot size and location, and upgrades.

 

The Bluffs at Robertson Ranch (starting in the high $1.2Ms)

 

The Terraces at Robertson Ranch (starting in the low $1Ms)

 

The Vistas at Robertson Ranch (starting in the high $800Ks)

 

The Ridge at Robertson Ranch (starting in the low $900Ks)

Good morning Jeff. Like Sharon, I wish I could afford this too. Lovely photos and is that a dog up top in the second one?

Thanks Michael Jacobs - it's a popular community and selling well, despite the prices. It used to be farmland, with the hills all covered with tomato plants.

Thanks for the kind words Sheila Anderson  - it does look a little like a dog but I think it may be art of a fence.

Hi Joe Pryor 

It's funny how this field made me immediately think of the movie. Perhaps I was just trying to come up with a clever title!

Thanks Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, CRS 

You can't help but be impressed by the colors. Will it sell these homes? Maybe!

All the rain...now over...has certainly helped with the flowers this year!
