When you enter the gates of the San Francisco Botanical Garden you exit the urban turbulence of the city. It’s acres of quiet paths, manicured lawns and gardens with over 9000 different plants from around the world. It’s Eden in the city; Eden that is without a naked couple discussing the pros and cons of eating apples. It is San Francisco though so there’s a better than even chance that you might run across a naked couple.
This edition of Friday Fotos focuses on the San Francisco Botanical Gardens with a green theme.
With a few exceptions most of the photos in this post were taken in a section called the Ancient Plant Garden that features plant species which date back millions of years. This particular garden features ferns, broad leafed plants and a full range of the shades of green.
Many of the plants had holes in their bright green leaves providing the opportunity to have some photo fun.
Below some color editing of the original (above). It’s monochrome – but still green-ish.
