Matilija Poppy

Here's a visual break from the urban cityscape, a billowing Matilija poppy as seen in the Strybing Arboretum & Botanical Gardens in Golden Gate Park over the weekend. The Strybing is as close to Eden as I can imagine and a place I occasionally have to retreat to so as to help erase tape in my brain. It's like therapy to wander the vast gardens and groves here. Golden Gate Park is truly sacred ground.
