The Bridge, Dutch Windmill and Train!

We’re slackers. How lame is it to blog about something that’s been going on for months (since November), but is about to close in four days? Until March 13th (this Sunday) you can still get your butt over to the Conservatory of Flowers for some Garden Railway action.  It’s cool! James Sellier, Artist in Residence at Recology crafted a bunch of new SF landmarks out of recycled materials. The Dutch Windmill’s blades are made out of old wooden rulers, love it!

 

Mini bison paddock

Yes, there really is a bison paddock in Golden Gate Park with real life bison frolicking about. I guess I’ve never seen them frolic, but I bet they do late at night when no one’s looking. According to wikipedia they’ve been keeping bison since 1891.

Conservatory of Flowers

No mini Golden Gate Park scene would be complete without a mini Conservatory of Flowers. I love the Aloe “tree”.

It's the Castro & Financial District

There are a few non-park scenes going on too. If only the Transamerica building and Castro theater were so close to each other in real life. Coming soon: Amy Stewart’s Wicked Plants: Botanical Rogues & Assassins, opening April 7th. We won’t wait months and months to go check it out this time around.

  1. AMAZING, especially the bison paddock!

  2. That is so beyond cool! I had no idea there were bison in that park. Neat!

  3. Thanks for the heads-up on the Wicked Plants! I had no idea, and it makes me so happy. I love that book, it is such a great resource (for when I poison people…? Don’t tell…..). We should finally meet and go together, and then do dual blog posts, maybe?
