at christmastime, the boy and i went to a messiah singalong in stanford memorial church. we sat next to a lovely older man named bob and got to know him a little. he told us he works part time at filoli, which is one of my favourite places ever. he said we’d have to come visit in the spring and he would take us on a tour.
last week bob let us know that the 60,000 tulips at filoli were at their peak! so we arranged to come see him and them on sunday afternoon. it was such a glorious couple of hours. i was totally swooning at all the gorgeous flowers, in awe of the splendor of man’s cultivation and organization of god’s creations.
