Artist Access Day at Filoli

This afternoon I have a ticket for an Artist Access Day at Filoli, a historic estate with a mansion and huge flower gardens.  Once a month, they let painters and photographers enter when the place closes at 3:30 and stay until 6:30.  It's a beautiful place with unbelievably beautiful flowers and so many lovely vignettes to photograph.  The last time I went, there were probably no more than 30 people in the whole huge place.  I'm going with a bunch of people from my photography club -- we're just going to meet and say hi, then go our own ways.  Here are a couple of pics from the last time I went:

It's been raining a lot here, but today the weather is supposed to be nice -- around 74 degrees and partly cloudy, with little wind.  I hope to be back with some nice pictures to show!
