Spring Flowers

What is your favorite flower? I've decided my fave flower changes seasonally. I'm always a fan of peonies, sunflowers, and tulips (among others) - but right now I'm ravenous for ranunculus! I just learned of the Ranunculus Fields and Festival in Carlsbad, California. Doesn't that sound gorgeous? A "spectacular sea of bright colors!"

Now, here in the Northwest, we may not be known for ranunculus, but we are famous for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, in Mt. Vernon, about an hour North of Seattle. The day trip is so worth it! On a sunny Spring day, the views are simply stunning, and the tulip buds stretch on for miles. It's truly breathtaking. But I can only imagine how lovely field upon field of beautiful ranunculus must look on a Spring day.

Anyone ever been to the Flower Fields in Carlsbad?
