Sugarbush, Take Two

San Francisco has seen a lot of early blooms this fall, although, it might be fair to ask, “early” from whose perspective? Perhaps the flowers think they’re blooming just on time. Here are two takes on a black-bearded sugarbush seen on Thanksgiving Day (November 24) at the San Francisco Botanical Garden.

This 1931 bronze work by Clara P. Huntington was first exhibited at the 1939 World’s Fair on Treasure Island. It’s now one of my favorite sculptures in Golden Gate Park. You can see it nestled in the Garden of Fragrance at the San Francisco Botanical Garden.
