Frankly, it's been a kinda cranky day here at the office - nothing in particular has actually gone wrong - but, it's just been a long string of frustrations for most of the day.
So before escaping to my wonderful little home out by the beach - I've been looking through the amazing pictures that my dear friend Lisa took at Filoli Gardens yesterday morning. Lisa and I had a date to tour through the San Francisco Decorator Showcase (We'll continue our tour here in a day or two) yesterday afternoon - and decided to spend the morning exploring the gardens at Filoli. The Filoli Estate is about 20 miles south of San Francisco - I've blogged about the gardens before - but, yesterday was just magical - everything was SO beautiful after weeks and weeks of heavy rain accented by warm sunny days.
So with Lisa's permission, I'm sharing a few of my favourites from her images . . . . .
A spectacular Double Delight Rose.
So lovely. The collection of rose specimens in the gardens is extensive.
