Thank you so much for this info. My son and his family live in the Bay Area, and this blog is a great resource. I will ask him to check it out.
Thank you! I hope your son finds it useful.
ditto, THANKS!! there’s a pricey, but AMAZING garden in miami i love to visit, and it’s been years… YAY!!!!! and it’s on the list! 🙂
Great! Personally, I haven’t been to the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers, though I frequently drive right by it on the way to other museums. We may be heading into the city this Friday!
This is so fantastic – I had no idea! Thanks for sharing.
You’re welcome! I haven’t seen much press about this, maybe because I don’t subscribe to BH&G?
