We decided to visit San Francisco, before bringing our son to the airport for his flight back to his study in the Netherlands. The Japanese Tea Garden inside Lake Park seemed nice on this cold
haha day (51 degr.) with an icy wind. Were so surprised that still so many were visiting.
This park is a few miles long and is compared to Central Park in New York.
a weak attempt to smile:)
Nothing makes you forget the cold like a nice hot cup of tea (even though we were still sitting outside!). All the pics in this post were taken by hubby, because I wasn’t feeling well, and when evening came I was so unwell that I wasn’t able to go with hub and son to the airport.
Across from where we were sitting, I saw a man in his fifties (?) for the longest time sitting very still, staring ins blau hinein (German expression for staring into the blue sky). When I mentioned that to hubby, he responded, “He is not thinking. He is seeing where he needs to cut the tree he sits in front of.” Then I saw the garden scissors in his hand…
Most bushes were kept low, and everything was to the very tiny details harmonious. I think these are catskins?
Amazingly, some actually were crossing this bridge (most of them young). Of course hubby and son had to try this too. Since they’re both very tall, it was easy-peasy for them. Son in blue jeans.
Part of the ceiling of the door opening of this magnificent building below. The inside was not open to the public (as far as I know).
What is your favorite park or botanical garden?
Hubby did not have a sky pic while visiting the Tea Garden, so I’m adding a random one:)
and thank you for your concern – am healed up now!
