Spring at Filoli

Fight for a just cause; Love your fellow man; Live a good life.” Filoli, in Woodside, California, was named after the credo of William Bowers Bourn, the original owner. This 654 acre estate, about 30 miles south of San Francisco, is open to the public (for a fee) with a 16 acre formal garden.  I took a day off work Wednesday to visit Filoli with a friend and stroll through the grounds soaking up a big dose of springtime blooms and beauty.

    Beautiful pictures! It makes me want to make the trip again.

    • You should! Margaret and I agreed it was the most beautiful we’d seen it and we’ve been several times. Everything is so carefully pruned and maintained it is a pleasure to stroll around and see what is bursting into bloom and what will be blossoming in a week or so. The fruit trees were flowering and peonies were just starting to come into flower. Lovely!

    I had no idea you were THIS clever. Not only can you do all these things, you have the time and energy to write about them!! Had lots of fun looking around your blog. Unfortunately, although I love a lot of your ideas, I am not that clever.


    • Thanks, Lindy! Maybe you’ll try out one of the recipes sometime. Believe me, many of these are REALLY simple and you could do them if you wanted. Thanks for stopping by! – Dianne
