On my birthday, I went to Golden Gate Park and spent some quality time with my Mom.
She had never been to San Francisco before, so I took her to the Conservatory of Flowers. Lucky for us, it happened to be their monthly free day!

While I had been to the conservatory before, I had never seen the Dahlia Dell. It was there that I learned that the Dahlia is the official flower of San Francisco.

I sat in the butterfly garden and watched the monarchs hatching. I love the gold and green pattern on their cocoons. I want to do something inspired by that palate now! Monarchs have the market cornered on color combinations, IMHO.

The Butterfly garden just got extended through March, so you have plenty of time to visit if you’re local.
