brief stopover in San Francisco

...en route between Shasta and cabin-in-the-woods, I detoured into the city on the Bay for some good company, good food, brief onslaught of productivity, flowers and ducks:

mama pooch always carries dog treats with her in the park - this guy "oso" was soft and fluffy looking, but a very stinky pup

I can't remember the name of these, but I loved the firey orange and yellow-coloured petals

snapdragon. for sure. have always loved these, and if I didn't have a penchant for killing plants, I'd be all over the snapdragon/honeysuckle garden. oh, also if I had a garden...

quack. quack quack. the mallard was quite plucky I'd say - not sure what's up with his semi-albino friend there, but the standard duck was so reminiscent of buck/chickadee, my adventuring kudu-launching plush friend of yore that I was captivated

Nasturtiums. Reputed to ward off bugs from your veggie garden, but no real proof of that...
How's the patio garden this year? Avocadoes, figs, all those things that make us in Ontario groan with envy?

Uh, no... not anymore. There was a horrible tree death last summer, and despite compost and love, I was unsuccessful in reviving the patio oasis :(
