This isn’t a post about the deYoung

This isn’t a post about the Arts & Crafts exhibition at the deYoung – which ends in a few days – because when I went to the park just now, the museum was emptying of people: strobes were flashing inside, alarms ringing, and a male voice surprisingly similar to the Disneyland man (or at least the Tragic Kingdom Disneyland man) was instructing all that an emergency had been reported, please leave the building.

I saw no smoke or emergency vehicles so who knows – probably an accidental trigger or a drill. Either way, no museum for me today. I’ll try again tomorrow.

In the meantime, look, a pretty flower. Awwww.

    That flower is called a Kangaroo Paw and occur[s] naturally only in the southwest of Western Australia.

    Very cool! Thanks for the info. I’m bad about checking the signs.

    I like how it looks like that one flower is about to eat the other one. Rargh! Argh! Chomp chomp.
