|Yesterday, we went to Lompoc to see the 'world famous' flower fields. At one time, Lompoc produced 50 to 75% of the flower seed in the world. However, vegetables have become more profitable and most farmers have switched. I should have gone 25 years ago. We only saw about 4 flower fields but I did get some pictures and it was still pretty and it's always a nice drive to go up that way. The only flower species we saw were stocks and larkspur. Supposedly Lompoc is famous for sweet peas, but we didn't see any.
Tribute to the vegetables. This is celery
