Remembering Strybing Arboretum Before They Put Guards at the Gates – Boycott of Botanical Garden Enters Third Month

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

I remember our former Strybing Arboretum (home to red foxes, pink berriesorange hummingbirds,  yellow poppiesgreen beer cans, or rather, green heronsblue heronsindigo blue jays, and violet flowers – I think that’s pretty close to Roy G. Biv, that rainbow mnemonic I learned in junior high school back in the 80’s, back before you were born).

I remember Strybing, currently known as the “world-class” San Francisco Botanical Garden, back before the boycott started a couple months ago. It was a colorful place.

I remember thinking that if people temporarily stopped going to Strybing during the 12 month trial period, then the workers getting paid $11 an hour to collect your $7 admission / scrutinize your photo ID would have the chance to find new jobs instead huddling in a wooden pillbox on caster wheels all the live long day. And then, once again, anyone could enter, just the way it was for the past 65 years.

I remember.

I think these trees are the ones atop Heidelberg Hill – they’re whichever ones you can see looking south from the Waterfowl (Wildfowl?) Pond. (300mm lens plus a lot of digital zoom.) Click to expand

Now, when I say “Star-Crossed San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge,” I’m referring to stuff in this 60 Minutes report* from earlier this year

Anyway, enjoy.

*Heh, 60 Minutes finally got around to fixing one of their two errors. Good for them.
