Re: California trip!

I thought of you a thousand times. I even talked about calling you but didn't know if I should. I talk about you all to my husband as if you are all great friends of mine. He has to ask," now how do you know them?"
You are so blessed to live in such beauty. Do you live north of San Francisco? We were suppose to eat dinner at a wonderful place in SF called Yangsing. Have you heard of it? This is my sisters favorite place but we got across the Golden Gate bridge and decided that this trip was about flowers and gardens not food so we opted to go on up the coast. We drove until it got to dark to see and stayed at Fort Ross, with no cell phone service. Our son, (16) was so worried that he left 3 messages on both of our cell phones that night. I hated to worry him so bad. The next morning on the TV the breaking news was about the fire truck accident on the San Mateo bridge... in the pouring rain. We were north of it all with beautiful sunshine. It was all glorious!
Thank you so much for your advice. FILOLI was fantastic! The wisteria and tulips were beautiful. I can't imagine it ever being a better season to see it in.
Thank you again,

TRICIA, YOU PASSED MY HOUSE! You could not have gone to Eureka without going within 2 miles of where I live. *sniff*

Glad you liked Filoli. Isn't that a beautiful drive?

Well I guess I will have to forgive you for now.

Subject: [CHAT] California trip!

I want to thank everyone for the help and advice you gave for our California
trip. We are back and exhausted. We flew into Sacramento then drove
towards Santa Barbara to see my sister. She has a beautiful place there.
It is the old Forest Peabody Estate that they have completely redone in the
last 5 years. I will have to send some pictures of her roses. The most
beautiful roses I have ever seen. We went to FILOLI gardens! That was
amazing.... if anyone has not seen this garden and can be sure to. I took
tons of pictures there too(over 800 for the total trip). We drove the
entire Highway 1 to Eureka, CA. We saw the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens,
over the mountain to Oahi to a wonderful South African garden, on the way up
the coast we stopped at the San Francisco Botanical Gardens and then on to
Mendocino Botanical Gardens. We were gone 10 days and put over 1700 miles
on the rental car.
I got home to lots of work and weeds. It was wonderful to be gone but now
to play catch up.
Thank you all again,
