Filoli Gardens

Something wonderful to do this summer is to take a trip to Filoli Gardens in Woodside California. This beautiful mansion and several acres of English-sytle gardens are open to the public. There is an entrance fee, but it’s well worth it. There is a restaurant and gift store, and if you make reservations on-line beforehand, you can have high tea there. Visiting public gardens is a lovely day trip. There are also the gardens in the Golden Gate Park, the Japanese Garden and the Botanical Garden, not to mention the glass conservatory and dahlia beds. Also, UC Berkeley has a great botanical garden. There are many others in and around the Sacramento and Bay Area.
