Perhaps a little late of an upload, but my trip with the ladies (plus Stevo!) to Filoli Gardens was so unforgettably beautiful. If ever you find yourself galavanting around in Northern California with nothing to do you've GOT to go!
I grew up surrounded by beautiful yards that my mom took so much pride in. Actually, one of the things I remember most when I was young was getting up in the mornings and helping my mom plant flowers, pull weeds + trim the dead leaves. Not to mention, I wasn't given allowance for it...I guess I just grew to enjoy the beauty that came from all the upkeep. We always had walkers (and sometimes even drivers) stop at our house just to look and appreciate the landscaping. People even knocked on our door, shocked to hear that it was my mother (not a gardener) that took care of it all. So perhaps visiting Filoli wouldn't be the most enjoyable trip for some but I sure enjoyed myself!!
