We had a real gully-washer of a storm roll through yesterday, but on Saturday I saw a bit of dryness on the horizon so I blasted over to the City.   After a few short walk-arounds in the Castro, outer Mission, and the really funky Ocean Avenue, I ended up in Golden Gate Park.

Now, I'd say that the San Francisco Botanical Gardens don't hold-a-candle to the University of California Botanical Gardens above Berkeley, but these gardens have a lot to offer.   Spring is doing it's best to bust-out, despite all this rain we've been having.

The Botanical Gardens are only a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Conservatory of Flowers which has a wealth of tropical plants, but I decided save the Conservatory for another visit -- just too many people inside of that gigantic green-house on weekends.

But wander around the San Francisco Botanical Gardens early on any weekend and you won't run into too many people.   Lots of little places to get lost in nature -- even though it IS located smack-dab in the middle of the concrete and asphalt zoo we call San Francisco.
