Victorian grace in modern San Francisco

Another Golden Gate Park image from a couple of years ago, this time stunning Victorian-era greenhouse, the Conservatory of Flowers. Built in 1878, it’s the oldest building in the park, and is said to have been modeled after the renowned Kew Gardens palm house. It’s well worth a stop if you’re in the park. The building itself is stunning, and the collection of rare and exotic plants & flowers inside is beautifully curated and maintained.
