Summer Flowers - Flower Bouquet at Filoli Gardens

California Flower Gardens 2

Summer at Filoli Gardens in Woodside, California brings the fragrant colorful tree blossoms cherry, pear, and apple. In addition you'll discover flower arrangements of fresh cut flowers from the Filoli grounds gracing the tables and spaces you'll visit on the Filoli Mansion tour. While the gardens are not typically available for weddings, they offer fantastic ideas for event planners and brides to be. A visit to Filoli Gardens is inspirational. Set to the backdrop of hills that stretch in the distance behind the mansion grounds, Woodside is a 654-acre estate shown in the opening scene of a once popular TV series,
Dynasty. Woodside, a small city surrounded by forests and parks, yet amazingly close to Silicon Valley, Stanford University and San Francisco Airport in San Mateo County, is open during the summer months, offering tours to the public for a fee.


If you are a flower lover, don't hesitate to check out this "well worth it" side trip that's located between San Francisco and the coast and Half Moon Bay. When open, there's usually a flurry of volunteers tending to many tasks such as upkeep of the gardens, planting flowers, offering docent-led tours and selling gifts in the on-site store.  Cards, souvenirs and items about flowers or with flower designs can often be found there.


Named Filoli, to Fight, to Love, to Live, William Bourne built the country retreat completed in 1917. Open February through October.  Address: 86 CaƱada Road, Woodside, California 94062. Directions: Approx. 30 miles south of San Francisco in Woodside, south of Highways 92 and 280 Junction. Call for hours, schedule changes and restrictions: (650) 364.8300 x507.
