IU7...Filoli

This public garden is located in an upscale area south of San Francisco, the former estate of a wealthy shipping family, now protected by a foundation.

You can barely see an Idyll-cluster in the distance. From Idyllunion 7

Sunny D , Drema and Saucy look fetching under Sally Holmes From Idyllunion 7

If only I'd had a cool filter on my camera like V and Saucy this may have not washed out so badly--hopefully they will contribute their own views of this awesome border From Idyllunion 7

Pondering the ID.. From Idyllunion 7

If they were looking for blackspot, they probably found it ! From Idyllunion 7

What an interesting place! That dovecote is incredible! The knot garden is very, very cool. I love all the color.

Are the doves inmates or are they able to leave via the top?

I simply cannot accept that such a place indeed exists... and that the conspiracy has been so successful that its existence is within 30 miles of the Compound... ;)

Just beautiful. You must have had such a great time.

Our Book Club met on Monday evening to discuss The Art Instinct. Each chapter is worth an evening's debate. I made the point that a garden could be a piece of art, something the author discounts, and I think I was convincing. In any case Keeyla's gardens and the succulents and knot gardens here are further ammunition for my arguments.
