A few months ago, I went to the Elizabeth Gamble Garden for a photo excursion. The gardens are visited by many artists and I spied this lady painting the garden under her umbrella. She looked like a painting herself in this little scene.
There were lots of bees, just pollenating away. They move so fast, it was hard to capture them before they moved on to the next flower.
I love topiaries and was pleasantly surprised to find this giant bunny next to the carriage house.
There was so many varieties of flowers - it was truly a lovely estate. How wonderful it must have been to live there back 100 years ago. It was built in 1902 by Edwin Gamble, son of the co-founder of Proctor and Gamble. His daughter Elizabeth lived in the house until she was 92. When she passed in 1981, she gave the estate to the city of Palo Alto. How lucky we are to have this little piece of living history to tour and enjoy.
