Beautiful Hidden Garden Steps Mosaic

May 3, 2014

Three years ago, reporting on a meeting I attended, I mentioned the Hidden Garden Steps project. The other day, a friend told me it was done, and of course I wanted to see it. So off we went.

It starts at Lawton and 16th, next to a painted bench, and connects to Kirkham.  Here’s the first flight up, with a snail…

hidden garden steps 2…(and notice that many of the flowers have names of donors on them?)

hidden garden steps 3More flowers, a dragon fly, and ferns…

hidden garden steps 4

hidden garden steps 5And lots more names!

If you want to see each flight of steps in more detail – and even read the names on them – there’s a website with photographs HERE.

And there are views – including one of my favorites, the beautiful Sutro Forest.

    Thanks a million for the wonderful write-up and photographs; hope you’re continuing to enjoy the Steps and members of the ever-growing community of supporters who are helping to maintain the site. Updates will continue to appear on the project website at http://hiddengardensteps.org and on the Friends of the Hidden Garden Steps blog (http://hiddengardensteps.wordpress.com).
