Anne Patrick has been teaching floral design at Filoli for 16 years. Her next lecture/demonstration will be on Oct. 11. by Jane Knoerle


hen Anne Patrick presents her popular floral-design lecture and demonstration Thursday, Oct. 11, at Filoli in Woodside, don’t expect spare arrangements featuring a single bloom or branch. “I like arrangements to look as if they were just picked in a garden. I try to make a real mixture and hope to be able to use flowers from Filoli’s gardens,” Patrick said. For 16 years Patrick has taught advanced floral design at Filoli, with certificates awarded to 265 graduates after an intense three-week session. She teaches classes at Filoli each spring and fall, commuting from her home in Carmel. She will also teach a fall wreath-making class on Oct. 16. When first approached about teaching at Filoli, she asked her husband, the late Robert Reinkens, if it was a good idea. “Of course. It will probably only last a year,” he said. “When I’m up at 4 a.m. getting ready to go (to Woodside) I think you’ve got a lot to answer for,” she said with a laugh. When asked if it wouldn’t be simpler to stay overnight on the Peninsula (the class is held on Monday and Tuesday mornings), she answered, “Oh, no, I have to collect more flowers.” She relies on a good source in Carmel. Patrick was truly born into the world of flowers. A native of Yorkshire, she was the daughter of a famous horticulturist, Tom Patrick. “He was an incredible man. There wasn’t a plant

in the world he didn’t know,� she said. Her early training was in the workshops and greenhouses of her father and at the great English flower shows. She remembers catnapping in a sweet-pea box between chores at the Chelsea Flower Show. She realized early on that she was more interested in picking flowers than in growing them. As a young woman, Patrick studied at the Constance Spry Flower School in London. “She was the most incredible lady, the Martha Stewart of her day,� she said of the well-known author and florist, who was also a talented cook and founder of the Cordon Bleu Cooking School in London.

‘I like arrangements to look as if they were just picked in a garden.’ —Anne Patrick After graduation, Patrick stayed on to teach at the Constance Spry School and take part in floral decorating for gala events at Covent Garden Opera House, as well as royal weddings. She recalls the wedding of Princess Anne to Capt. Mark Phillips, using all white flowers for the winter ceremony in Westminster Abbey. A great admirer of Princess Anne, “She does so much good work around the world,� Patrick said. Her career also included working on set design for three films at the Shepperton Studios in London, including “Suddenly Last Summer� starring Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift. “We worked long hours, from 4 to 5 in the morning until 9 at night,� she recalled. While teaching at the Constance Spry

School in the late 1970s, Patrick met her future husband, Robert Reinkens, an American retired from the F.B.I. After the couple married, they moved to Carmel and opened a flower shop at the Lodge at Pebble Beach. She also traveled around the United States, giving demonstrations and lectures on flower arranging. Today, Patrick lives in Carmel in the same house she shared with her late husband, but has given up the flower shop. “Too much work,â€? she said. She still enjoys teaching at Filoli and is proud that 20 of her advanced floral design students have gone on to become teachers themselves. “It’s been very exciting. I’m 74 now, but I hope to do it another year,â€? she said.

Real Estate Matters Is market timing really possible in real estate? by Wendy McPherson rom June 2009 until December 2010, there were about 1,000 houses and townhouses sold in Menlo Park and Palo Alto. I suspect that most of those buyers are very pleased with their purchases right now. They should be. Based on average prices in those cities, that time period reflected the lowest prices in about the last seven years. Not only were the house prices the lowest but interest rates were about 5.5 percent, historically very low. Add to those factors, the regular compelling reasons to buy in this area (lack of land on which to build, a vibrant business community, a world-class university and almost unlimited intellectual stimulation) and what’s not to like? So why were many buyers unable to make a commitment to buy during that period? During those approximately 18 months, all I heard from my agents was: “My buyers won’t make a decision.� “They look and look and just won’t make an offer.� “My buyers will not get off the fence.�


It’s not liquidity that moves houses, or IPOs, or growing companies that are hiring. These things are tributaries. What really moves our marketplace is the river of consumer confidence, and consumer confidence was at a very low ebb during that time. If you don’t have confidence in the future (or the future of the asset you are buying) then most of you will not buy.

Long-term timing The successful investor notices the crowd mentality and starts to analyze and study the underlying structure of the marketplace. What fundamentals have actually changed? Has the amount of land on which to build changed, the business environment changed or the educational opportunities changed? How secure is the Silicon Valley machine? Will

our area be better or worse in five years? If the answer to your analysis convinces you that following the crowd is the wrong thing to do, then you are a contrarian. The time to buy is when everyone else is not buying. Welcome to the Warren Buffet side of the equation. Real estate is just another asset class in the financial spectrum. It offers a wider window of time in which to analyze and decide about buying and selling. Of course, most residential sales are based on personal client need. However, considering the percentage of net worth most of our homes represent, it is certainly prudent to examine the timing of that large investment.

Short-term timing Learning to look for seasonal timing signs is another key to making a smart investment. My friend, Sarah, will be celebrating the first anniversary of her house purchase in Palo Alto on Dec. 23. She bought the house on Nov. 23 last year (the day before Thanksgiving) and closed two days before Christmas. The people she bought it from had had their house on the market for more than three months and while many other sellers had taken their houses off the market for the holidays, her sellers had not. Given a choice, most people do not want strangers traipsing through their house on the day before Thanksgiving. The timing was right for Sarah and her family and it

was clear by the sellers’ timing that the sellers were looking for an offer — Thanksgiving week or not. From a seller’s perspective, giving thoughtful consideration to the timing of presenting their home on the market for the first time can be critical. The obvious bad times are Christmas and Thanksgiving weeks. Other bad times, especially in this area, are graduation time, most of the month of August, and the week of July 4. There may be still other times that your real estate professional can fill you in on. Competition specific to the product (your home) is critical to this analysis also — what else is out there on the market? The timing of the placement of a home on the market is an art. If it is done properly, it can be worth a lot to your bottom line. Given our local economy’s close adherence to the vagaries of the stock market, and especially, NASDAQ, it is also important to be sensitive to the stock market’s ups and downs. We have an extremely efficient real estate marketplace: For every buyer there is a seller, for every seller, a buyer. If you take the time to study and consult professionals, that marketplace will reward you.

3 VERSAILLES STREET M EN LO PARK Open Saturday and Sunday 1:30-4:30 pm

As a Realtor serving Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Atherton, Portola Valley and Woodside, I do my utmost to provide extraordinary service to my clients. The Almanac and the Palo Alto Weekly is always where I advertise first because I like the home delivery, editorial focus, and it is a great value. I have always had great results promoting open homes in the Palo Alto Weekly and The Almanac, and I also run in special publications like Spring and Fall Real Estate, Neighborhoods and Info Menlo because of the great coverage and online presence. I am also a big believer in the Palo Alto Weeklyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Open Home Guide, which is by far the most accurate and comprehensive. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had many buyers bring in the guide to my â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Open Homesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to see what I have listed.â&#x20AC;?

“The Palo Alto Weekly is the best paper you can count on for results.” – Gwen Luce “I have been a successful Realtor for over 20 years. My clients deserve the best, which is why I always advertise in the Palo Alto Weekly. No other publication is delivered to as many homes in the area, and no other publication’s news coverage focuses specifically on local issues that are critical to my clients. I have also had great results promoting my open homes with Palo Alto Online and more recently with “Express”, online daily news digest. The bottom line is the Palo Alto Weekly offers a true winning combination of print and online coverage!”
