Retreat from the World

Filoli Weary of grim news from Ferguson to Gaza, Iraq to Ukraine, Ebola to the sad death of Robin Williams, my friend Mary and I sought refuge at Filoli today. The summer gardens were in full bloom, and in addition to feeling refreshed (if I repress the gridlock on my way home), I am practicing the photo gallery feature of Word Press. Enjoy!


What is your antidote to world weariness?

  1. I would never have guessed there were so many flowers blooming at this time of year! thanks for the pictures – relaxing just to look at

    • Aren’t they incredible? My friend Mary had been there in early July, just when the summer annuals had been planted. She was astonished to see the difference. I think I will mass some zinnias in my garden next year.
