Lady in Red

Tracy reese dress

Last year I tried to get to the flower fields in Carlsbad but the timing never really worked. In fact, the flower fields are only open from March to early May. This year, however, we hit the nail on the head when we happened to be in San Diego in mid March!

The flowers are all ranunculus, which are a bulb. Oddly enough, the flowers are grown not to sell as flowers but to harvest the bulbs. The fifty acre fields were perfect for taking pictures. There were plenty of people doing just that.

red is my favorite color

Besides jumping over the “do not cross” tape into the field,  I also changed in a port o potty, which is wildly challenging to not touch one single thing when changing out of one dress into another! But actually, I am getting pretty good at changing in weird places. (Like in Cuba, outside at the Fortress built in 1589, where there are swarms of tourists,without anyone seeing me!) And you thought blogging was easy…

But anyway, it’s funny the situations I put us in to just take pictures. We’ve decided that’s what makes our adventures extra fun and interesting. If nothing else, we sure have some good laughs. 

oh and…..
