Its been awhile since I’ve visited this grove in San Francisco’s Golden Gate park.
When I visited recently in October – it was a crisp sunny morning – a great time to visit the park and take a nice long walk by myself.
This special grove is called the aids memorial which I haven’t walked through in ages – I wanted to see how the garden looked at this time of the year. Just outside the grove, I spotted these beautiful variegated hydrangeas blooming in mass, it was nice to be greeted with these beautiful flowers….
I love seeing late blooming flowers at this time of the year, a mass of these hot pink japanese anemones were striking in a very shady part of this grove filled with redwood trees.
I do love spending some alone time and discovering something new, or really rediscovering something or someplace I haven’t been to in along time…. I forgot how special this place was.
a simple flower boquet offering is placed at this center plaque.
It puts you in a mood to stop, think and contemplate while in the beauty of all this surroundings.
….the circle stone bench is a welcome detail that can accommodate a large gathering.
-more pink flowers of oenothera cover the bottom of this beautiful acer lit up by the late afternoon light, it was a pretty vignette.
another detail shot of this pink anemone – they are beautiful at this time of the year.
This is a sweet place, I’m glad I stopped by for a visit and see some of the fall flowers blooming here….I’m glad they made this a very tranquil and quiet spot in the park – a perfect setting to think about love ones.
