Fridays with Manny


Where to Find Tranquility?

On my way to take Max to his dog sitter, I drive through Golden Gate Park, and pass by the San Francisco Botanical Garden. I wanted to return many times, and finally made it happen on Friday morning.

Since it is not a blooming season, there were not many visitors. I felt overwhelmed by the nature’s beauty. 55 acres represent nearly 9000 different kinds of plants from around the world. The Garden’s history goes back to 1880; it was a brainchild of the Park’s supervisor, John McLaren. The Garden continues in its development and in the spring of 2022, it is scheduled to open a complex with a New Plant Nursery. I strongly encourage you to find time for a visit.

I wanted to share some of the flowers in their natural beauty with you, and had difficulty selecting three images. I will let you know when I will add some others to my website.

Enjoy and Share!
