Calla lily

Trio: West to East in the Park

Three flowers from Golden Gate Park: Calla lilies near Middle Lake; yellow flag iris at Stow Lake; angel’s trumpet in the SF Botanical Garden. This piece will probably be in my fall show at the Botanical Garden, “The Park: A Love Story,” which will run from September through December 2016.

Side by Side by Season

In a BinaryEndgameBottomlineEitherOr world, it’s nice to head to the park and find beginnings living side by side with endings. At the San Francisco Botanical Garden on Saturday, you could see autumn leaves and spring buds on the same magnolia tree, and a callow calla catching light with fall color behind it.
