San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers (Part 1)

Admission to the Conservatory of Flowers is free on the first Tuesday of the month. So I packed my camera and went along. Luckily I arrived in the morning, because by the time I left a few hours later, there was a long queue to get in.

It was tricky taking photos because of the crowd. One could not linger and had to move on after taking a shot.

But I managed to take a number of photos, but just a few in this post to start with.

There were lots of pitcher plants.

Honestly, I don’t find them attractive, but I do find them very interesting… does that make sense?

I was having a cup of coffee after having been indoors in the damp and crowded environment. Glad to be outdoors, and glad I was not in the queue.

Happy Weekend.

See Part 2 for more photos.
