GETTING IN YOUR HEAD?
Yeah me too. Lately, I've been letting my ego take the driver's wheel in my life. Dictating how I should live in constant fear and worry. I've been struggling over the coming to the end of my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT), questioning my ability to teach and guide like mind bodies in an immersive yoga experience. It's scary and has been put me in such a sensitive negative space where I’m very unhappy with myself. Thus and this morning, I decided to switch things up by going for a long 18 mile bike ride around nature. It recalibrated me where my noisy ego finally got quieter. I was able to reconnect with my true self, not the noisy ego chatter. It feels GOOD to be able to sweat out the ego and reconnect with myself again. •

Mama and papa in the scented plants section of the San Francisco Botanical Garden. After a while of rubbing herbs and smelling our fingers, we ran out of unused fingers. So the sniffing continued. And everything eventually smelled like pungent lemon mint. Taken on Fathers Day, 6/16/2019
Portrait of an old woman who spends her days at the botanical garden, painting water Lillie’s and gossiping with her old lady friends... who are also painting water Lillie’s. The pond is surrounded by old women. When a young person, entranced by the flowers stops by to photograph the flowers - they all chant in unison, “you need consent to photograph my artwork.” I guess narcissism doesn’t fade with age. I can feel it inside of me too. But, if you’re in a public place- prepare to be documented. That’s the cruel and beautiful reality of freedom of the press.

Our first two weeks of Garden Camp have been packed with wellness, gardening, and curiosity! Between tending to the Children's Garden, making our own sun tea lemonade, and heading over to visit our friends at the Conservatory of Flowers, every day has been a new adventure. We can't wait to see where the summer will lead us next!
Do you know a child between grades K-3 looking for fun this summer? Garden Camp still has openings including the special week during Flower Piano! Explore with us. See what sessions are still available at: sfbg.org/gardencamp
The collection is really putting on a show this week, so pop some popcorn and peruse the poppies!
Meconopsis, or the Himalayan poppy, is a relatively small genus found in Central Asia, where many species are endemic to Nepal. The most commonly seen Meconopsis species have blue flowers, however they can range from deep purples, to the vibrant pink seen here, to bright yellow.
Papaver rhoeas has a wide native range across Europe, Northern Africa, and Western and Central Asia. Though not native to California, Calflora has reported that the species has naturalized across the state. P. rhoeas also has an abundance of common names, including common poppy, corn poppy, and Flanders poppy. Papaver rhoeas became a symbol of the sacrifices of World War I, due to their abundance in fields where many battles of the war were fought; they were further associated with the war when included in the poem “In Flanders Field” by Col. John McCrae.

Romneya ‘White Cloud’ is a cultivated hybrid of the native Romneya coulteri and Romneya trichocalyx. This hybrid was first found in 1940 by Thomas Payne, the 20th century California horticulturist and native plants advocate, in his nursery. The cultivar was introduced commercially in the late 1940s or 1950s and recognized for it large flowers and compact habit.
