Botanical Garden. San Francisco (Part 1)

Sorry that I have not posted for a while. The truth is I hadn’t taken many photos of plants or flowers for a while. In my other blog, I upload photos of my travels and art frequently, so please visit me there too!

I visited the San Francisco Botanical Garden recently, and I hope that you will enjoy these photos.

I brought my sketchbook to draw.

But it was such a pretty place that I spent most of my time walking around and taking photos.

And some yellow flowers which I think were in the fragrant garden.

Thanks for dropping by.  More photos in Part 2.

Wow! San Francisco, have you done the obligatory Fisherman's wharf/ Ghirardelli square outing? I got my (expensive ) taste for seafood while living near SF during the sixties.
Are you home now?

おかえりなさい,Evelyn.

Botanical gardens keep us busy taking pictures. I like all the photos in this post. Each flower is taken lovely and livelily from a nice angle.

Have happy days ahead.
