Ok, I am not big into flowers, but I recently visited Filoli in Woodside California and the place is well known for its gardens so I that is why I am posting these … not for any other reason … just to be clear, I only find flowers useful when I get in trouble with my wife. 

The estate was built around 1915 for William Bowers Bourn II, owner of one of California’s richest gold mines and president of Spring Valley Water Company. It is a fancy country house whith really nice gardens which was was sold to the Roth’s and later donated to the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The name of the estate is an acronym formed by combining the first two letters from the key words of William Bourn’s credo: “Fight for a just cause; Love your fellow man; Live a good life.”
