What gorgeous, STUNNING images! As amazing as all of the flowers are, my favorites are the two with the bee. I have a "bee thing." ;)

The fields are just vibrant! Are these in So. Cali? I'd love to know where and take a visit! Thanks for the inspiration from nature!

Leslie Tucker Jenison said...

How beautiful, Alisa. This reminds me of the Wildflower Farm in Fredericksburg TX.
I love ranunculas so much. It would be thrilling to see fields of them.
Thanks so much for sharing the photos.

Laura said...

What beautiful and colorful shots! I've never been to a place like this and can only imagine how inspiring and gorgeous it must be in person - though your photos do a great job of capturing it all too! Thanks for sharing!

poindextr said...

love how you caught those honeybees. It's funny too about how flowers are agricultural products. Never thought about it that way, but the big John Deere tractor brings the concept sharply into focus. Then the palm trees in the background, that's a contrast too. Just love the whole composition.

Janet Ghio said...

Beautiful! When I lived in Texas, there was a nursery that had flower fields like this-from a distance, you could see solid blocks of color. It was so beautiful!

laurie said...

oh so beautiful! i like them better when they are growing than when they are picked.

Joan Shannon Jung said...

These photos are just gorgeous! They sing with sunniness!

Fields like this keep amazing me and make my heart jump. Even as a Dutch girl I will never get tired of them. Breathtaking. I specifically like the first pictures perspective by the way.

alexa said...

Just stunning ... Here, it's cold and wet and grey and I'm off to find another jumper. But this has lifted my spirits!

ellen gets crafty said...

Are you in the flower fields in Carlsbad, California? The ranuculas can be seen from the freeway in ribbons of bright colors.

mizdarlin said...

Not too far away from me, in that little country south of the 49th, is a place called LaConnor, in Washington State, that has exquisite acres of fields of tulips, and, in celebration, a Tulip Festival in the area (all of which is beautiful, BTW)
This set of images rivals the tulip fields-exquisite!

Lynnetta said...

I loved the photos of the little honeybee with her stuffed pollen baskets. I get my first package of bees on Wednesday! I'll finally be able to call myself a beekeeper!

Michelle said...

These photos are divine! At first they didn't seem real...they couldn't be real...I didn't know such beauty could exist. I don't want to be jealous but I kinda am. :o)

Laura Bray said...

I love the Flower Fields! It's always so inspiring to visit.

Yolanda M. said...

First time I comment here. Been reading your blog for almost two years now. I am planning on moving to SD in the next year or two. Your previous post confirmed my decision, but this one seals the deal!
I've been here before and it still absolutely gorgeous! Love all the shots. This is a beautiful place to have a peaceful walk and enjoy all these pretty flowers.

Terri said...

Where, oh where?

Creatissimo said...

Wow, this is what I would enjoy a lot too! (and probably wouldn't stop taking pictures of) ;)

Katie said...

oooooh! these are the most beautiful photographs! I rarely think photos do nature justice, but you may have just made nature better with some of these pics!

LeaSa's Bijou said...

Love, Love, Love these pix. I too will be up there this week. Haven't been up there in 7 years.
