the sf botanical gardens…

…are full of the most beautiful variety of magnolia trees.

brightly colored beautiful saucer magnolias…

just about 4 months ago, almost to the day.

one of the first photographs I ever took, developed and printed myself was of a saucer magnolia.

because of the bay area’s micro climates, san francisco has a most eclectic garden.

full of cretaceous, mediterranean, tropical and asian vegetation, making up a melting pot of lovely diverse foliage…. bearing a strong resemblance the cultural demographic of this amazing city.

I highly suggest visiting the gardens if you are visiting SF, and if you live in the immediate bay area…

admission is free!
