A return visit to Filoli...

Yesterday, Jeff and I took a short drive south to the Filoli Center...a Historic Trust home and 16-acre formal gardens...near Woodside, CA. We visited in the fall a few years ago, but never in the spring, when the bright flowers are at their peak.

FYI, those of you who watched Dynasty in the 1980s will recognize this home as the Carrington mansion. For our part, we experienced no melodrama on our visit...just throngs of Asian tourists.

Lovely flowers. We have yet to see any here. Although, it has been warmer than normal this last week. Today near 70 degrees.
