Filoli Gardens

Frank, Jeannine and I drove to Filoli House and Garden down in Edgewood on the Peninsula.  We arrived on a perfectly warm sunny day in California.  The strong sun light washes out many of the subtle colors.

The sunken garden, planted with hot oranges and cool purples.  Verbena bonariensis created a tapestry on the dark green yews behind it.

Octavia Boulevard

In Hayes Valley along the old Caltrans right of way, the city allows urban farming until the parcel of land is sold to developers.   This little community garden makes the otherwise bleak walk from the Mission to Hayes Street a lot more interesting.

Look at those really short sunflowers!

Heron's Head Park

Recently restored wetlands where the PG&E power plant used to be.  It's gone.   That's Hunter's point on the horizon.
