When Louie Figone mentioned to me a few weeks ago that the ranunculus fields were starting to turn colors, I jumped on the opportunity to take a field trip down to his ranch in Half Moon Bay.
Jill from Studio Choo was able to sneak out of work early on Friday and the two of us made the drive together. The field above wasn’t planted this year, but a few rogue plants were in full bloom and Louie let us cut them.
This interesting spider caught my eye as she climbed around one of the amazing coral ranunculus.
Stacks of perfect stems wait to be sorted, counted and brought to the market. Next trip we take will be to see the scabiosa fields and then of course, the dahlias. I’m looking forward to it already.
