SAN FRANCISCO CONSERVATORY OF FLOWERS

The San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers is one of my favorite Bay Area haunts. Perhaps it’s the humidity I’m attracted to, such a contrast to our very dry climate here; perhaps it’s the smell of lush earth; perhaps it’s the vibrant colors of everything from orchids to elephant ears to pitcher plants. Actually, it’s all of these things and more...
