A walk in San Francisco this time of year is a blessed thing. But maybe not today. Today is foggy and a little cold. I took these pictures yesterday when it was sunny. Today, staying home with your cats is a blessed thing.
A little bit dissonant to totally fence off your yard from the neighborhood and put up a peace sign and Christmas lights.
My sunflowers are still just seedlings compared to these.
My neighborhood park is beautiful by any reasonable standard, but also the kind of place you can take for granted when you live in San Francisco.
The Eucalyptus globulus is invasive, but I'm pretty sure the message refers to humans too. Such is San Francisco. But what comes around, goes around. "Kill vandals and taggers" is how I feel. So there.
Copper canyon daisy (Tagetes lemmonii) on the left and Centaurea gymnocarpa on the right. Two plants that get real big, flower pretty much all year, and thrive on neglect.
This view always stops me cold when I turn the corner here. I have never gotten a picture that captures it well.
