Carlsbad Flower Fields Up Close


I attended a CRS Networking Event with 25 other Southern California Realtors this past Thursday for a couple of hours at the Carlsbad Flower Fields.


California CRS Realtors


It was fun to see my CRS friends as well as to meet other agents I didn’t know. There was time to talk with each other before taking a tour. After the group photo we split up into small groups to leisurely walk through the gardens, and of course take lots of photos.



While I have often driven by the Flower Fields on Armada Drive on the hill above to the east which offers great panoramic views of the flowers and the ocean, I haven’t seen the flowers and the venue itself up close for years.

It was a sunny day with a cool ocean breeze, although the marine layer moved in before the event was over so it was pretty chilly. That, however, did not alter the beauty of the acres of Ranunculus at peak bloom.

Hello Jeff - while I am certain that the recent CRS MeetUp was very special in many ways, it is the photography you captured at the Carlsbad Flower Fields that caught my attention.  So nice.

Thank you  so much Michael Jacobs !

It WAS a different kind of networking event. I really enjoyed spending time with a couple of friends and seeing all the flowers, and the venue, up close.

Enjoy your weekend!

I really enjoyed the up close look - the colors were amazing. We last visited up close when we first moved here from Boston on 2005. There were a lot of people visiting and lots of photo and video action going on.

They are pretty impressive Michael Elliott and I enjoy them every year, as do thousands of people - visitors and residents. They are particularly impressive up close.
