The weather was about as bad as it could get today for Garden Conservancy Open Day in Marin County. Our annual 'June Gloom' has been nowhere to be found and the sun was bearing down this morning with desert-like intensity. Here in Napa we reached the big 1-0-0 (plus) and Marin, in spite of it's proximity to the bay, was unpleasant. I was semi-undaunted;out of 4 gardens open I picked out 2. Foolishly the Worth Garden was not one of them. Remorse.
A hillside garden in Kentfield was my first stop, a garden that is a showcase for Berkeley artist Marsha Donahue. (I visited Marshas' garden here.) Though the conditions for photography were dreadful, I took many.
