Happy hump day to all the busy bees out there 🐝! Keep up the hard work but remember to make some time for a break, get outside and enjoy the natural world!

@karlthefog really wanted to come to the first Extended Evenings for Members tonight so do dress in layers and bring something warm (or with warming qualities 😉) to eat and drink.

Good news is late summer blooms such as these two beautiful Magnolia grandiflora ‘Russet’ flowers and the beginnings of beautiful fall color are also here to warm you up in the Garden tonight! Come on out! You can sign up for membership on the spot and all levels get to bring guests! #sfbotanicalgarden  (at San Francisco Botanical Garden)
