Blooming Luck

Coming home from Easter with family in San Diego we chanced to pass the famous flower nursery at Carlsbad Ranch on an especially clear day when some flowers were in peak bloom.

It was tempting to land and find a way to get there. If we’d had our “tweaky tandem” bike along, it would have been a great outing. As I circled waiting for other planes coming and going at nearby Palomar, the flowers and falls at the Crossings golf course were accented by wild mustard on the hillside.

At last cleared by the tower to cross the departure path of the runway, I flew directly over the flowers and snapped these with maximum zoom. Cropped down they give some sense of how magical it is to wander among the blooms.

The gentle mood of this pic is so refreshing. The girl standing and taking in the field of color is the stuff of dreams, and the rest of the family seems almost reverent. In the crops of the few snaps from our passage there are lots of cameras visible, and this is my fav pic of a pic.

Old family pix of ours often include strangers who happened to be in the background. As the entire world gets wired, it’s fun to imagine that someday soon their loved ones can google our pix and discover snapshots of long-lost friends and relatives who chanced to be there. Is this a honeymoon couple who will chance upon this pic found by their domestic robot to supplement their 50th anniversary in 2062?
