It's a spring fling!

This is a fun little 1/2 day trip.  I've done it several times.  When my friend Jacki invited me to go, I was delighted.  
Located in Carlsbad, CA, they grow and provide flowers, including the famous Ecke poinsettias, to many retailers.
We took the tour around the fields in one of the tractor-pulled rides.  It's a good way to see all the fields, and it's fun.
Some of what we saw…..
and some more….
Some demonstration gardens…  I loved the watering can with chains of clear marbles made to look like water and the bird house covering a hose bib and faucet.
A few final shots…one of the John Deere tractors.
So we didn't get lost….
And a grand arch of morning glories.
Then we went to Ruby's and had the most delicious burgers with grilled parmesan bread.  Yum!
~ Peace ~
