Filoli festival celebrates autumn

Photos by Michelle Le Giant bubbles created by the Bubblesmith, above, are a popular attraction for children, along with puppet and magic shows, and face painting at Filoli’s annual fall festival. Below, manager of horticulture Alex Fernandez directs staff members Marianne Spitchley, driving, and Megan Olsin to Filoli’s fruit cellar.

From pumpkins and puppets to bubbles and barbecue, event is a feast for the eyes and the palate Heirloom fruit tasting, nature hikes, orchard tours, flower-arranging demonstrations, and a barbecue lunch drew hundreds of visitors to the annual Autumn at Filoli Festival on Saturday, Sept. 28, at the historic estate in Woodside. Children visited the pumpkin patch, applauded the puppet and magic shows, and marveled at the Bubblesmith making giant bubbles. Visitors tasted rare pears, apples and grapes from Filoli’s Gentlemen’s Orchard See FILOLI FESTIVAL, page 23

containing more than 650 varieties of heirloom fruit. They sampled cider from the estate’s apple cider press and strolled gardens still at their peak of beauty. In the weeks before the family-friendly festival, the Filoli staff was busy harvesting fruit to be sampled and preparing the gardens for the winter months to come. Each season at Filoli has its own rhythm. The autumn festival was the last large public event at the Woodside estate until Holiday Traditions, which will be held from Nov. 29 to Dec. 7. This annual fundraiser is a week-long extravaganza of boutiques, teas, luncheons, and parties, involving hundreds of volunteers and drawing thousands of visitors. After Holiday Traditions ends, Filoli will be closed until its early spring opening in 2014. A

You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged

to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder's office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale.
