THE CONSERVATORY OF FLOWERS, SF

the-conservatory-of-flowers-top Some people don’t like it, but I actually don’t have anything against rain. Especially not the one here in  San Francisco, which occurs every few months and stays only for a day or two. In the middle of a sunny month, when you experience the pressure to spent every minute outside, rain can be so calming and relaxing. the-conservatory-of-flowers-2 the-conservatory-of-flowers-1 That’s how I felt with the rain last week. It poured but I was so motivated to do so many things at home. Clutter-y closet bye, bye. On Tuesday, after spending the whole morning in front of the computer, a break was much needed. the-conservatory-of-flowers-12 the-conservatory-of-flowers-11 the-conservatory-of-flowers-10 The rain stopped for a second and we decided to go for a short walk and get some coffee. We walked the Panhandle to The Conservatory of Flowers. I have never been inside the Conservatory of Flowers and and thought it would be fun to spontaneously visit it. While looking for my credit card to pay the tickets the nice lady reminded us it’s Tuesday which means museum entrance is for free. Nice. We went inside and found ourselves in an old world glasshouse, full of beautiful local and exotic plants. the-conservatory-of-flowers-12 the-conservatory-of-flowers-3 the-conservatory-of-flowers-4 It’s a real pleasure to spend time at The Conservatory of Flowers. So inspiring, amazing light, all the plants you otherwise wouldn’t see and you can even have a real experts advice on how to take care of your fiddle fig leaf tree. the-conservatory-of-flowers-9 the-conservatory-of-flowers-14 the-conservatory-of-flowers-7 the-conservatory-of-flowers-8   We made a round, took bunch of pictures and had to go back home as Patrick had to continue working. But I will go back for more. The Conservatory of Flowers is definitely a place to visit, not only once.

p.s. It’s was pouring on our way back, but it was worth it. the-conservatory-of-flowers-5 the-conservatory-of-flowers-6 the-conservatory-of-flowers-13 The Conservatory of Flowers

    I can’t believe it was almost 2 years ago when I walked through all of this – it was totally amazing. As everything in SF. The city of my heart!

    Lots of love,

    This is definitely on my list to check out. I love the idea of making it a rainy day excursion.
