Filoli 2014

To piggyback off yesterday's post, Vinh, my sisters & I continued our weekend with a trip to Filoli Estate on Sunday the 13th. It was a warm day with blue skies, absolutely perfect weather for strolling through my favorite historical estate & gardens.

Standing under some pretty flowers

We first wandered around their gift shop & they have some of the cutest Easter displays up! I love bunnies :)

After roaming the gift shop & smelling nice lotion, we wandered into my favorite gardens. I had missed the tulips & daffodils this year, but it was still gorgeous nonetheless. I shall share a few photos with y'all ;)

I love all the different colors combine :)

For more Filoli posts from throughout the years: 2013 - 2012 - 2011. I hope y'all enjoyed all the prettiness!
