The San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers has been magnificently restored to the original glory of this impressive glass house complex in Golden Gate Park. What a treat to see beautiful flowers bedded out in front of the glorious Conservatory. Inside, the plantings are stunningly arranged and beautifully displayed. It was a great privilege and pleasure to be there and to give a talk about my book to an enthusiastic and engaged audience. Several members of the audience knew Rosemary Verey and had been to Barnsley House so had their own insights and stories to share after my talk. Thank you Jane Scurich for inviting me and thank you, Dolores Gebhardt and the Garden Conservancy for co-sponsoring the event.
