The Lodi Garden Club Spring bus trip was to Filoli Gardens in Woodside, about 30 miles south of San Francisco. Upon arrival the 40 club members were divided into four groups. Docents guided each group through the gardens and the Georgian Country Estate while talking about its history and plant collections.

The two-hour tours showed the changing gardens. The April 10th highlights included iris, azaleas, wisteria, and beds of foxgloves. The elegant first floor of the 36,000 square-foot house was part of the tour which included the wood-paneled library and ballroom. After the tour members were on their own to explore and enjoy a box lunch.

The garden store and gift shop was the last stop for purchases of special items from Filoli (FIght-LOve-LIve). Arrangements for the tour were made by Richard and Marsha Griffith. For more information about The Lodi Garden Club activities, call Esther Kreth at 209-367-1544.

    The Filoli Gardens are a delight anytime of the year. The gardeners and landscapers plan it that way. For example, there are several varieties of wisteria, each blooms at a different time. The $18 admission permits all day access to the gardens, trails, and any of the docent lead tours.
    The Lodi Garden Club has two bus tours a year. Plans are already being made for next spring's daffodil show at Murphy's Ironstone Winery. Anyone who loves flowers and gardening are welcome to join our club. Membership is only $20. Call 367-1511
