Stanford Gardens

A local site that travels locally called California Travels – “We’ll be exploring Northern California places the crowds don’t find” is their motto – travels to Stanford and finds an Andy Goldsworthy wall and a cactus garden.

The time is 8.30 in the morning and it is very peaceful. I wandered around looking at the many different cacti and succulents and then found a bench in the sun to write my journal. ItÂ’s a perfect day with hardly a breeze to stir the leaves. Every so often I gaze at the garden, which is showing its age a bit.

Now I know you’re wondering whether or not our weekend was pleasant, but the truth is often harder to discern after a couple shots of vodka. So I’ll just say that we were pleasantly surprised.
