Well this was a surprise, I just found this post that was not made public for a few years, so I figured I would still share it. Here is a little information about a press trip to the San Francisco Decorator Showcase is just what the doctor ordered!
The front gardens
Just after I took this photo, a young girl enjoy opening and closing this grand gate and pretended she was entering her own secret garden.
As you might be able to see in the background that my day was full of sunshine and cloud free skies. It was gloomy and cold when I left Boston. This weather was just perfect!
Flowers were in full bloom everywhere and these potted white hydrangea helped soften the hard edges of the exterior back walkway of the decorator showhouse.
Can you imagine looking at this everyday? When I went outback to enjoy one of the gardens, this is the view I was greeted with.http://www.decoratorshowcase.org/showcase/home.htm
