I would like to dedicate the school project I just turned in to Girl Talk’s album “All Day”. I listened to it while constructing my presentation, while writing my paper, and while walking to and from one of my project’s subjects, the horticultural library in the botanical garden. It was a brisk walk through the pouring rain, and it was just what I needed. The music was blasting and the calves of my jeans were completely soaked and I was singing along as I hopped over puddles.
This lovely place is tucked just inside the main entrance of the San Francisco Botanical Garden at Strybing Arboretum in Golden Gate Park. You can walk right in and use any of its resources that you like. The collection is primarily focused on horticulture and botany, with some natural history and agriculture as well. There are also some great art exhibits in the space. Right now there is a display of some lovely plant macros, and I kind of like those.
Now, because I do not want to rewrite part of my project anymore, I will go eat and watch “Glee” on Hulu and pass out.
