Botanical Garden Trees
First, for those of you who had inquired, the header photo is the pond at the entrance of the Botanical Gardens. This is where I shoot my duck videos.
It's been cold and rainy here in San Francisco the past couple of weeks and as a result I could not visit the gardens. I find that my garden jaunts have increased from once a week to about three times a week so I have been experiencing withdrawals. Yesterday we had a short reprieve so I decided to get out there again.
The renovations are still in progress with new trails and paths being cleared each day. I always find something new.
While I love a Christmas tree all adorned in lights and ornaments, there is nothing like seeing these beautiful trees in their natural state as is depicted in the above photo. There is a cluster of them all year long next to the redwood trail.
There are portions of the gardens which are showing signs of Winter as in the photo below and then there are still remnants of Autumn as in the photo above. What a contrast. I've taken many more photos and will be posting more over the next few weeks.
