Q: Do you frequent the botanical gardens?

B.B.: Yeah, we go to a lot of gardens and different nurseries and stuff.

J.B.: We've been here before, but it's been a few years-probably five years.

What do you find about the Berkeley botanical gardens that make it different from the others?

B.B.: We think it's more natural.

J.B.: It's bigger than most.

B.B.: And it has variety. It has expertise going for it.

Do you keep a garden at home?

B.B.: Yeah, we keep a large garden.

Even though the weather today isn't warm and sunny, do you still find this an enjoyable place to visit?

B.B.: I was raised in San Francisco so I thought the rest of the world was always like this.

Mike Pucher
