In the Garden Again
It’s Fathers Day, and that means it’s time for the annual Ruth Bancroft Garden sculpture show. Once again the best succulent garden in the country is filled with sculpture from well known Northern California artists.
Friday night was the opening party. We walked through, enjoying the overcast yet warm evening. The pictures I took are not at all comprehensive, just the items that grabbed my interest.
