If you are visiting the San Francisco East Bay area, take a morning to walk through the Ruth Bancroft Gardens in Walnut Creek. You can easily spend 2-3 hours wondering through the gardens. I was luck the day I arrived as they were exhibiting the works of local sculptures.Here are a view of the succulents, cacti, ponds, local shrubs and trees that I found dotting the paths.
