I am back!

What a trip. Wonderful, amazing, beautiful and fun! Those words hardly describe our little four day adventure in southern California. Then we came home to snow-snow-and more snow! So while I unpack my bags and re-live my memories of the last few days, I leave you with these gorgeous photos of the flower fields in Carlsbad.
Soaking up the warm California sun!

The ranunculus are absolutely breathtaking.

Chloe's first trip to the beach...ever!

More tomorrow on my class at Sweetpeas and information on the kits I have left.


Good to be home, but I sure hope the snow melts soon.

Our Easter snow has melted..
On my 1st encounter with the sea, I asked my parents if the waves stopped at night...

I have never in my entire life seen anything like those flower fields. I don't know how I could even walk away from such a thing. Lucky you to have seen it.

Ahh what beautiful flowers! Lovely pictures. I am going to be staying in the hotel above those flower fields this weekend, I wasn't sure if the flowers would be all a bloom but I see they are! Now I really can't wait! Thanks for sharing
