To celebrate v's birthday, Friday, we drove up to San Francisco to visit the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park, and to take in a show, War Horse.
We did get some sunshine Saturday morning on our way back through the park. We were taking a drive I hadn't taken before so I was delighted to discover the Conservatory.
Next to the Conservatory is the glorious dahlia garden.
We've, neither of us, ever seen so many dahlias. The colors are intoxicating. Blood red to snow white. Tiny tight buds to magnificent giants with long spiky petals.
We'll leave you with these images for now.
In bocca al lupo. m & v
