The Carlsbad Caverns are a famous, natural attraction that draw visitors from all across the country, but the Carlsbad Flower Fields are also popular. This site has opened to the public this week and, while the renowned flowers here have yet to bloom, some tourists are already visiting, according to 10News.

The fields are currently just dirt, but they will soon give way to spring flowers known as ranunculus, which have the ability to wow many onlookers with vibrant and memorable displays. Flower Fields General Manager Fred Clarke thinks that, even though the buds are growing slowly this year due to the cold, the bloom will be well worth the wait.

"We are off to a slow start. That means our main season is really going to be nice," he told the news source. He estimates that there will be anywhere from 130,000 to 140,000 visitors to the area this year.

There are a variety of other activities that are sure to entice visitors - the Carlsbad Mining Company offers guests the chance to find their own precious stones by sifting sand through water while there will be a maze set up that is designed entirely from sweet pea blossoms, according to
