Last year, our group had a ginko and a picnic at the Tilden Botanical Garden
in the East Bay Regional Parks District near Berkeley in northern California.
We had a great time; some wonderful haiku were written and shared.
The native plant gardens are spectacular and very interesting!
This year, we are going to do it again on June 13, 2015.
Details are in the current Geppo. It's blooming again now!
Go if you possibly can!

selected haiku, Brooks Books, 2005,
(Note: I recently was able to find a copy of
the selected haiku of longtime Massachusetts haiku practitioner
Wally Swist, where I found this haiku.)
