The streets and flowers of North Berkeley.

During my last week in Berkeley, one of my favourite things to do was to wander aimlessly through the streets of North Berkeley.

Although the city is famous for the UC Berkeley campus and hipster street of Telegraph Avenue, my first impression of Berkeley would always be this.

The quiet street.

Not to mention how fiery it turned one magical sunset in March.

So it was only appropriate that I said goodbye to the city by taking my time to admire everything about the neighbourhood.

I admit though, that there isn’t much to write about the day. I roamed around for hours, just lost in my thoughts, mostly wondering how did time fly so fast. And taking  pictures of flowers. A great part of admiring North Berkeley is the flowers, along with the Victorian houses that come with them.

I’m pretty sure there isn’t a law against snooping around outside people’s houses taking pictures of their flowers. So I went on a full rampage.

Berkeley even has a garden of roses.

And if you think my image of the city is somewhat rose-tinted, then so be it.
