A Little Bit of Heaven – The Filoli Gardens



Recently, I paid a visit to Filoli, a grand country house set in 16 acres of formal gardens surrounded by 654 acre estate in Woodside California.  What I love most about the estate are the beautifully landscaped gardens, which have a sense privacy  and surprise.
They are planted with everything from exotic Chinese peonies and European hornbeam trees to sturdy geraniums and old fashioned roses.

Now a property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, it was built in the early20th century to dazzle, is one of last of its kind.  Do have a look around!




























Tag along as I share musings on everything from family to business, which will hopefully inspire you and stir the mind. I am happy that you are along for the journey. Here’s to Living Lively!

    I must admit, your photos do this place justice! I live in California and had never heard of these gardens. Adding them to my list of places to visit!
