Foxgloves & Fog

Yesterday afternoon after finishing a few errands on Upper Fillmore I walked over to Alta Plaza Park, where foxgloves were trying to act buoyant in the heavy fog that prevailed.

This patch of flowers was surrounded by a living fence of grape vines, trained low.

An avenue of elderly cypresses (above) lines the northern side of the park, along Jackson Street. The southern side (below) is dotted with cherries in their dark summer foliage.

Looking down onto Clay Street and across the foggy city toward the southwest. The true San Francisco summer weather has arrived.
