Most winter Saturdays here involve hunkering indoors and looking forlornly out windows at mud and standing water . None of that this year-yet. I motored down to Berkeley which was downright balmy and cloudless. At the University Botanic Garden you won't find lush highly designed perennial borders or beds of annual color. The rose garden is full of Chinas, Damasks, and Noisettes, with a killer view of the Golden Gate. Areas are divided by global region; with plants diligently labeled and naturalisticly arranged. Clearly a teaching garden, with a consistently interesting plant palette.
Awesome gigando twin Banksias.
