I have waited since mid-May for the annual June Gloom to set in-the better to take photos at the Ruth Bancroft Garden. I finally gave up, as the overcast mornings have been nowhere to be found, and my garden tour calendar is filling up rapidly.With a hearty WTH, I set off this last Saturday morning to Walnut Creek in spectacularly glaring sunshine , arriving at opening time to find the parking lot full. A myriad of folks with substantially fancier camera equipment than I have were setting up their tripods and the painterly set had easels and paints situated in strategic positions throughout the garden.Remind me to go on a weekday next time.
I do love this garden, and spent two hours there with few decent photos to show for it, but time well spent none the less.
