Our World Tuesday Memories and Moving Forward

San Francisco Botanical Garden Moon Viewing Garden
One of my favorite spots in the garden.

The garden has given me so much joy and these photos are from my archives of over 4,000 photos.  It has been a little over a month and though I still miss the garden, it is time to move on.  My memories are embedded within my heart.

The Wildfowl Pond where all my wildlife buddies would hang out all day.

My place of rest and renewal in Temperate Asia

I so miss my feathered friends singing to me each day.


My favorite tree, the Chinese chestnut tree.

Shannon watering, Thursdays at the main gate.

Shioko, my friend you are the angel of the gardens.  I'll be seeing you at McClellan.

A rarity in the SF garden, my favorite lily, the stargazer.

The monkey hand tree, one of the best shots I ever took in the garden :)

There's a trick to the Graceful Exit.
It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage,
a relationship is over - and to let go.
It means leaving what's over without denying its value.
- Ellen Goodman


I am participating in Our World Tuesday

What a beautiful garden. I'm so glad you have many photos to help you enjoy it even after you are away from it as it sounds like you are in a time of transition. I love the quote you've selected too.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful place! The ponds are lovely. Did you retire or move? I am sorry you are missing your favorite place and lovely birds.

It looks a magical and spiritual spot indeed; I need to scroll back to see why you've moved on. I hope it was for a happy reason and more beauty awaits you elsewhere.

I've been to this beautiful place, a tranquil oasis in the city. The bloom on the monkey hand tree is spectacular.
