It is difficult to believe that such a place exists smack in the middle of Baguio City. As you turn off the busy Naguilian Road into Dominican Road and traverse down the steep Queen of Peace Road, you see this chocolate-colored house with what seems to be a white belt on the right. You buzz your way into the driveway, and the heavy steel door opens.
When the steel door closes, you are met with this visual array of colors — from the azaleas, from the passion flowers, from the annuals that change every season.
You have the feeling that your experience is just about to begin– to be transported in a totally different world of flowers!
The most unusual flowers in the Lourdes Baguio Villa are the Medineas — in deep purple, in light pink, like a bunch of grapes or flowers cascading from huge pink petals.
Tehn, there are also the red grape type Medinea flowers that come in deep purple and redish pink tones.
The giant ferns that were planted fifteen years ago had now majestically risen to meet the sky. They formed a fence that separated the top half of the lot from the lower half.
Nothing have given guests of the Villa more pleasure than to have lunch under the canopy of jade flowers that dripped from the sun roof in the garden.
The Lourdes Baguio Villa is now for sale. The Lady of the House hopes that the next owner will treasure each flower as it comes, and will continue to love this beautiful garden the way she enjoyed it all these years.
