SF Botanical Garden's Native Wildflower Meadow Explodes
I love it when a reader writes in to Broke Ass Stuart with a tip and thus does my entire job for me. Solid work ethic! So, many heartfelt thanks to Lisa, who sent us this:
â€œThe wildflowers go off in April and this year promises to be one of the best. Don’t spend gas money driving miles to see the wildflowersâ€”they’re in Golden Gate Park for FREE. California boasts close to 6,000 native plants, more than all the other states combined! In fact, California was named one of the 25 biodiversity hotspots on the planetâ€”places with the highest concentrations of plant life on earth. You’ll see some of our state’s most beautiful natives at our garden.â€
If you’re anything like me, and love spring blossoms but have terrible spring allergies, it’ll be like a little outing to a beautiful, colorful, flower-filled, hell. What better, more lasting souvenir, than countless hours of sneezing and itchy, watery eyes?
