Flower Fields

Tuesday, April 1, 2014
On Sunday, I drove up the 5 to the Carlsbad Flower Fields. Oh. My. Real quick negative - parking was crazy and it is overpriced, but worth it at least once. I had seen pictures of these flower fields and have driven by them, but never really looked at them. Saturday, at the market, I happened to purchase some ranunculas to bring to a dinner I was going to. I had no idea that's what grew up in Carlsbad!
Domenica, ho preso l'autostrada a nord e sono andata ai campi dei fiori. Mamma. Mia. Una cosa, il parcheggio era a Caltanissetta, e il biglietto costa troppo, pero' merita almeno una volta. Io avevo gia' visto tante foto dei campi, e ho anche guidato di fronte a loro tante volte, pero' non ho mai guardato. Sabato, al mercato, avevo preso un mazzo di ranunculi da portare a una cena. Non avevo idea che crescevano a Carlsbad!

I walked in, and sucker I am, took the tractor ride. Not worth it, unless you have kids, because you can walk everywhere! Anywho, took the tractor up, and then got off at the top so I could meander through the flowers. It was truly spectacular being in the middle of all those flowers! What a sight!
Sono entrata, e ho preso il trattore per portarmi in giro. Non serviva. Si puo' caminare ovunque. Va' beh. Sono scesa in'alto e poi ho caminato con calma, fra i fiori. Che vista!

Hundreds upon hundreds of ranunculus!
Migliaia e migliaia di ranunculi! Proprio meraviglioso!

There was also an orchid house that had some truly beautiful orchids!
C'era anche una casetta dove crescevono l'orchidea che erano bellissime!

It was definitely worth the trip to take all the pictures I took - the flowers are truly amazing!
Era proprio meritevole solo per le foto che ho fato - i fiori sono proprio stupendi!
