Words of Wisdom

No, not mine. I'm fresh out.

My youngest and her family visited a hostel in Los Altos Hills recently. It is called Hidden Villa Farm and Wilderness Preserve. These are a few of the pictures that she took there, and judging by them, it must be a very charming place to stay with small children.

There are open fields and cultivated ones, an educational garden for the children, small farm animals and chickens, a creek - what more could you ask?

They grow both vegetables and flowers.

Perhaps one of you can identify some of the wildflowers that they found?

There are many signs posted - rough painted on boards or on the side of one of the out-buildings - explaining what can be found there.

We never know where we may find true words of wisdom.

The first wild flower is campion -or it was called that when I was child in England.
Looks like a place where I could be happy!

I'm sorry to say I don't recognize those flowers, but I sure do like the Jimi H. quote!
