When Heaven touches Earth.....

Filoli.....a simply magical place.



From the Georgian mansion, to the tea cottage....
my soul was filled with gladness.



This mosaic in the garden is in honor of the dear lady
who shared this gift with us all.


My words can not do it justice....
so enjoy the photos that I hope
capture this bit of Heaven on Earth.

Remember....you can click on any photo to enlarge.



























I hope everyone who comes to visit the Bay Area
will take the time to visit Filoli.

It was the highlight of our vacation!!!!


Next....quilt shops and shopping!!!!

Hi
I just dropped by for the 1st time.
I love the tour of the beautiful gardens!
Where do you live or are you vacationing? It sure is a lovely area.
I just became a follower-I look forward to visiting again!

Beautiful...Reminds me of the old old hymn-"This is My Father's World."

It does look like heaven. Gorgeous!!! And your comment from Linda makes me smile. "This is My Father's World" is on Donovan's little cd that I hear every night when we put him to bed. His world is so beautiful! XO

I have never heard of Filoli. It is now on my list of must "visits". Tulips are my very favorite flower. Your pictures are gorgeous and highlight a beautiful place to see. I agree...a little heaven on earth.
