I convinced Hubby to go to the de Young museum with me where they had an exhibition of Amish quilts. I was ecstatic to find that they also had a flower show on the day that we went :)
You were greeted with this arrangement in the entrance:
Taking a closer look, I loved it:
Ribbons in various shades of pinks and purple with orchids attached to some of the ends. Looking up, it was wonderful to see the light streaming through.
A few of the other bouquets to see:
It was wonderful to see the Amish Quilts but unfortunately, we were not allowed to take photos.
You can get a great view of the city from the top floor of the museum.
We had a brief moment in the Botanical Gardens.
We did not have enough time to explore all the gardens in the Golden Gate Park, I would've loved to walk around the Japanese tea gardens but, we only had time for a quick peek through the gates.
Afterwards we walked for what felt like miles through the city until we found a bus that took us half way back to our hotel. Funny how things always look like walking distance on a map :) Oh well, I did enjoy the opportunity to see more of the city on foot and to enjoy the architecture.
