Hippy Hill at Golden Gate Park

If you know where the Conservatory of Flowers is in Golden Gate Park, you already know where Hippy Hill is.   And don't worry, if you are blind you can just follow your ears because you're going to be hearing a half-dozen dudes wailing away on drums and the occasional guitar.   And man, can they get wailing -- really powerful drumming -- with beautiful ladies swaying to the beat, babies running around, the odor of marijuana sifting through the air...

I think some of the best stuff at the Conservatory of Flowers is in the outside garden.   Lots of cactus and succulents, nasturshums, and a lot of other plants I haven't a clue what they're named.   Several beds remain to be planted, so this area will look even more spectacular later in the year.

I didn't feel like going inside the Conservatory of Flowers on this excursion -- I'll be going back soon.   Now that I'm 62 years old I qualify for a senior discount and get a couple dollars off my ticket.

Orange, isn't it?

LOVE the orange. You and orange flowers were made for each other.

The header is fantastic. I know I won't have a chance to be back tomorrow, but it's spectacular.

These 2 better be careful, the way things are going in SF, it won't be too long until the city fines you for playing music in the park without a permit.
