Sculptural Stone Work in the SF Bot Garden

The Strybing Arboretum in Golden Gate Park is not only a spectacular place to view exotic foliage from all over the world but it is also a place to view stunning stone work.

The stonework depicted below was sculpted by Edwin Hamilton.
He fashioned together cast off stone pieces from days gone by.

I particularly like the living columns that are just beginning to be planted with perennials, succulents and epiphytes.
