Foxy Foxgloves and Delicate Dancing Daisies

We had planned a family day out to Muir Woods, a redwood forest near San Francisco, on Memorial Day but little did we know how popular it was going to be! After assessing the parking situation we moved on to the city and decided to picnic in Golden Gate Park.

We found a lovely little section of the park called the Shakespeare Garden which although not big had some lovely floral surprises.  The California Spring Blossom and Wildflower Association originally established it as the Garden of Shakespeare’s Flowers and it has a history dating back to 1928.
