It all started on instagram. My friend Genevieve was in town. She’s a stylist from LA who I met on my first international commercial. And she’s a big hippie at heart.
I always get excited when I see an LA local around San Diego because 1. LET’S HANG OUT and 2. IF WE DON’T HANG OUT I’M GOING TO STALK WHERE YOU GO IF IT’S BEAUTIFUL AND GO THERE TOO.
In the case of Gen, it was scenario #2.
Since she was only in town briefly, homegirl was gone by the time I hit her up. But the photo of her in a huge field of flowers while she was here stayed seared in my brain.
Where is this magnificent flower place? I asked myself over and over again. Finally, I headed to the google machine. I barely got passed “ San Diego fl” before The Flower Fields showed up and my heart sang arias.
A fifteen minute drive and $25 season pass later, I was in heaven. This place is beyond (beyond beyond!) beautiful. For a flower child like me, it’s a dream come true to wander around a preserve so gorgeous, thoughtful and wonderful. From the extraordinary colors to the wide variety of wildlife, I was totally enthralled. Fifty acres of Tecolote Giant Ranunculus to gawk at and fall in love with.
If you have a flower field by your house that you had no idea about, do some research and then GO TO IT. NOW. Don’t wait another moment! Normally they are only open in the Spring for a few weeks.
I loved this amazing way to explore my own home town.
Who knew there were such beautiful things right in our own backyards?
