Ruby Begonia...If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to see the flowers everywhere....Infinite Diversity Blossoms in a Potrero Hill Community Garden, a Thought Sandwich

BySarah J. Curtiss

I am so fortunate to live in a city that promotes gardening through community gardens. These beautiful plots of land are tended by city dwellers who keep the concrete jungle from taking over every square inch of our city’s access to Mother Earth. What a marvelous species we are to be able to enjoy planting purely for the joy of looking at the blooms. Though vegetables are well represented, the vast majority of gardeners seem happy just to coax a blossom to open its petals and allow us a look into its very private center. As is proper in a thought sandwich, there is a thought at the beginning and a thought at the end… the center is a visual journey to the Potrero Hill Community Garden, an extra special spot in our extraordinary city, plus, in the interest of complete honesty, a few images from Crissy Field and my neighbors’ flower boxes on 16th Street.
