Pink Carpet Trailing Ice Plants Along Coast at Monterey

The first time I saw a picture of the pink carpet trailing ice plants blooming in Monterey, I simply could not believe it was true.  But the stunning flower bloom is real, and it usually peaks in May.  These pictures of the pink carpet trailing ice plants were taken at Lover’s Point.  This oceanside walk near the Monterey Bay Aquarium is truly spectacular!
