Spring has arrived in many parts of the United States of America. While Cherry Blossom trees reach peak bloom in Washington, D.C., people in California are taking advantage of ‘The Flower Fields’ in Carlsbad.
People are taking pictures amid waist-high blossoms in every imaginable hue of orange, pink, yellow and purple at California’s famous Flower Fields in Carlsbad as it opened to the public.
The fields are made up of almost 50 acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers.
The attraction was closed for most of 2020, due to pandemic-related restrictions, but plummeting coronavirus cases and California’s move to the orange tier of lockdown restrictions means the fields can once again welcome a limited number of visitors.
The fields, 34 miles (55 km) north of San Diego, showcase more than 70 million flowers, creating an annual spectacle when they bloom.
The Flower Fields, which are open to the public until May 9, are also a working farm that sells flowers, which end up at florists and supermarkets.
