Flowers lift the spirit & refresh the soul. -Martha Lever
For today’s Thursday Doors, join me on a Springtime stroll through Filoli Garden where Palladian-style windows and doors grace the Georgian Revival Historic House and outbuildings. The garden door in the featured image leads visitors from the Clock Tower Shop courtyard into gardens filled with tulips, pansies, hyacinths, wisteria, and other spring blooms. Arched gated openings in 10-foot high brick walls lead to the Walled Garden where clipped hedges are separated into many smaller ornamental gardens. A Sunken Garden facing the Clock Tower has a large rectangular water feature surrounded by pots of pansies. Facing away from the Clock Tower, one can see the expansive views to the hills that lead to the Pacific Ocean. No matter the season, Filoli Garden never disappoints the door and garden lover.
