Fall is a beautiful time of year to tour Filoli in Woodside, CA as the gardens are still in bloom and the  trees are beginning to change color.  We visited there recently since two of my paintings are featured in the current art show, "Fall Landscapes of the Golden State".  We were dazzled by the beauty of the estate and still spectacular gardens in October.

The flower beds throughout the grounds were filled with colorful blooms.  A combination of orange and purple flowers defined the central garden and was stunning.  Layers of zinnias, dahlias and salvia grew in beds lined with boxwood for a lovely autumn display.

The formal garden design at Filoli provides dramatic viewpoints throughout the property.  Many are highlighted with elegant garden sculpture and wrought iron filigree gates.

The rose gardens were in bloom and filled the air with a sweet perfume.  There are many beautiful varieties, which are labelled for the convenience of visitors.  As a gardener, I always appreciate this educational detail, as I look forward to adding my favorites to our garden at home.

There are also extensive cutting gardens at Filoli and these were filled with zinnias, cosmos, strawflowers and a multitude of other fall-blooming beauties.

It was fascinating to see the rows of different flowers and autumn hued foliage plants which would surely look stunning in floral designs.

The dahlias were also blooming in gorgeous vibrant colors.   It was certainly a day filled with garden inspiration!
