Olea yodapaea

Megan took me to this special courtyard in the Presidio.  OMG, look at that Olea europaea with the Festuca ovina var. glauca (Common Olive Tree & Blue Fescue)!

Nice looking Common Olive - Olea europaea

LOL.  I heard about the Yoda Fountain shortly after moving to San Francisco, but never was able to pin point its location.  It’s at the Letterman Digital Arts Center aka Lucasfilm.  Ahhh man…and me without the good camera.  Instead I fired off some quick shots with the iPhone.

Blue Fescue - Festuca ovina var. glauca

If you make it to the fountain, keep walking and enter the lobby to see more cool stuff inside such as this Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata).

…and one of the Darth Vader costumes used in Star Wars.  Just to the left, there’s a Boba Fett too.


Sweet Bougainvillea

This place is mega cool.  Due to lack of parking, you may want to seek out this treasure by foot…or talk your way into the private parking lot.
