Tree Fern Dell in Golden Gate Park


That tree trunk is a fern.   It’s about 100 years old and 30 or 40 feet tall.   The reason that I’m only showing the bottom couple of feet of it is that as a two year old this is about all of it that I looked at.  The green stuff was much more interesting.

Boardwalk Flowers from a Long Gone ‘Playland at the Beach’


While Tom was at the VA, I hiked down to Golden Gate Park. Saw the archers near 47th then the Dutch windmill at the west end of the park. As I started the long uphill back to the VA, I spotted these flowers growing next to the dilapidated boardwalk wall.
