Part 2

After @tartineinnersunset , I stopped into @greenapplebooks (@maxwell_hows the zine section is awesome) and then onto the @sfbotanicalgarden (San Francisco Botanical garden) .
It is a lot bigger than I though. And an amazingly beautiful tribute to the fact SFs climate is so temperate and therefore a huge variety of plants.
From a cloud garden, to succulents to orchids to a South Africa section just lovely. Plus the redwood grove 🌳.

Ferry Building

Went to @ferrybuilding Friday and Saturday and saw these cute birds guarding the railings! Plus lovely flowers at the #farmersmaket and walking around. The sky was so clear yesterday and the colours everywhere so vibrant. #weekend walks. #birds #flowers #sky (at Ferry Building Farmers Market)

Explored the top of the #salesforcetower a few weeks ago and snapped some pictures of the plants. I really enjoyed my walk around the garden and loved looking and reading about the different areas the plants were from. Though naturally I was drawn to the plants I grew up with more. #sf #january2020 #flowers #birdofparadise (at Salesforce Tower)

The 31st August was two years since my mom died. This year felt rawer than last year. I suppose as you get further away, the knowledge about what you miss grows. I miss my mom, more than I can say.

I did a yoga style class at gym and had two mimosas, as I knew she would approve, then went to the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market. Something she would have loved. She would have tasted all the fruit, eaten some cheese and loved the people watching.

These flowers are for her. #mommy #rip #love #flowers (at San Francisco, California)
