Front of Filoli house
A day with the girls and two little cute boys at Filoli-
Filoli is a country house set in 16 acres of formal gardens surrounded by a 654-acre estate, located in Woodside, California south of San Francisco.
I have visited Filoli many times over the years and at all seasons....and I never trier of the architecture and garden design. I have to say though...Spring time is my favorite time to visit.
The home is always a delight with seasonal flower centerpieces in every room...and I love the marble in the bathrooms, the marble fonts in the niches and the columns of marble in the front.
Hope you don't mind the overload of garden pictures....Happy Spring.
Now to begin....the Feast for your eyes.
Olive Orchard- I actually love this...and I'm seriously thinking of doing something like this for our New home front yard...but of course in much smaller scale. (visiting a garden is inspiration overload.)
Enjoying their first visit to Filoli
One of the reason I love spring time at Filoli....well, the Wisteria is amazing! Twisted, knotted, old wisteria growing up and over the brick walled garden.
More than two hundred Irish Yews that had been grown from cuttings from the Yews at Muckross House, the Bourn property in Ireland, were transplanted to Filoli.
Garden house next to the sunken garden.
This is the pool bath house
Wisteria heaven...I'm also planning to plant wisteria at our new home and train it to go up the back wall.
perfect day...in the high 60's clear sky and no wind....the boys were adorable and the girls fun (smile)
