Installment #2 of our East Bay Parks adventures! This one was less of a hike than it was a stroll. My love for the Berkeley Botanical Gardens is no secret, so we stopped over there first. Right as we got out of the car, it started hailing…good start to the day, right? We had a mini-picnic (during which I stood for half of the time before finally spreading out a napkin over part of the bench) in the Redwood Grove, went into the garden to buy some plants, and then drove over to Tilden, which is just around the corner.
Over at Tilden we discovered another little nursery – of course we stopped and walked around because Alex is addicted to buying plants. 🙂
Tilden has another botanical garden attached to it, and I wish it hadn’t been so cold that day because we didn’t spend too much time walking around. But that just means we’ll have to go back! Due to the wind, we drove rather than walked down to the other end of the park and found the little farm. Super cute and highly recommend a visit! There were kids feeding the cows and pigs, and lots of chickens and bunnies. Even without kids it was a fun time for us.
