There is something to be said about spring…  

At Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty, we know how fortunate we are to live and work in Southern California with our mild winters, yet who can resist the month of April with its blooming flowers, longer sun-filled days, wonderful in-season fruit, and the fact that everything is simply more vibrant and colorful?  

This month, we are lucky to experience several garden shows and blooming wildflowers throughout San Diego, Orange and Riverside counties. One of our favorites is the fascinating flower display Joshua Tree gives us this time of the year.  While the extent and timing of spring wildflower blooms in Joshua Tree vary from year to year and depending on the rainfall and spring temperatures, flowers normally begin blooming along the higher elevations of the park in March and April. Last year was quite the show, and who knows what this year will bring?

Joshua Tree

Another one of a kind flower experience is the Carlsbad Flower Fields, which is now in full bloom. This is where locals and tourists from all over walk along a 50-acre field blossoming in stunning red, orange, yellow, green and purple flowers. Truly a masterpiece, the gardens are open through May 10 and offer various horticultural programs and arts and crafts.  Other upcoming garden shows include:

  • Coronado Flower Show, April  21-22 at Spreckels Park
  • Sherman Library & Gardens 21st Annual Private Gardens Tour, April 22, 2018.  Stroll through several private gardens in Newport Beach and Corona del Mar while enjoying art and live music.  For additional information, ticket and shuttle service,
  • 25th Annual Spring Garden and Butterfly Festival, April 28, 2018, El Cajon
  • Gate and Garden Tour, May 4, 2018, in Laguna Beach.  Here is a wonderful opportunity to walk through some of Laguna Beach’s most coveted and historical gardens.  Hosted by the Laguna Beach Garden Club
