Today we drove into San Fransisco so that Lara could swap bags with her lovely new friend from Ireland, Laura who she met at GDC18 in the Moscone Center and we all went to Golden Gate Park and the Conservatory of Flowers. We walked from one end of the park to the other and focused on the Japanese Gardens and the rhododendrons. It was too early for the roses but the azaleas and rhododendrons more than made up for it. Laura was a wonderful young woman and we all had a delightful time. Photographing flowers, especially exotic ones like orchids, is an amazing experience and I am exhausted but so appreciate of all that I saw today.
