Daffodil Daydreams at Filoli Gardens – 2013

7 Comments

Presentation1On Saturday I had the opportunity to attend Daffodil Daydreams with my amazing girlfriends. After a quick stop at Starbucks, we carpooled up highway 280 toward Filoli Gardens. What a gorgeous day. I took a number of photos and hopefully they will give you a feel for the types of flowers you can see at Filoli during the month of February and March. Although there are a few photos of tulips, most were still tight little buds which will explode into a mass of color over the next few weeks. If you missed the event this weekend, don’t worry – pick a day and head on over. You won’t be disappointed. Also, I can’t stress how wonderful an Annual Pass is. They cost $60 and for $15 extra ($85 total) you can also get a second pass so you can always bring a friend for free. Lilacs are next and you won’t to miss them!

Over the next 9 months I will be posting the flowers that are in bloom at Filoli – I’ve you’d like to receive email updates of these posts please click the “Follow” button over on the right. Enjoy!

Would you like to purchase a print? Please click on “Contact”. My photography is printed on aluminum. Utilizing an advanced process which infuses dyes directly into the metal, the colors and saturation are really amazing. In addition, your print will be displayed using mount blocks which float the image ½ inch off the wall.

  1. I biked right past you, and did not even know a celebrity was in my ‘hood! Great photos, as always.

    • You’re too sweet – where were you when you biked past me? 🙂

      • I live in Emerald Hills, and drop down onto Canada Rd. A typical sprint ride (when I’m pressed for time) is up to Hwy 92 and back past Filoli. !5 miles of sprinting w/music. Yeah, I’m an outlaw biker w/iPod. More fun to go longer with my club, or another person, however. When I was in veterinary practice I had to treat a herd of Cashmere goats that had eaten toxic plants. Nothing like a herd of goats vomiting, in the rain, and trying to pump charcoal, mineral oil, and Maalox into their stomachs. I ended up just throwing my clothes away!

  2. these are astonishing

  3. Beautiful! Can’t wait for our next trip!
