Valentine's Day has come and gone, leaving cut flowers in its wake. But before you mourn the end of the beautiful bouquets, take advantage of San Francisco summer and today's Flora Grubb Gardens sale. A little garden work now means enjoying the vibrant greenery and colorful blooms for months—maybe even years—to come. All plants at the open-air gardening center are 20 percent off their retail prices, but the sale ends today at 5pm. So put on your sunnies and shorts, and make the drive out to Bayview. Then order up a Ritual Coffee at the store's very own coffee and espresso kiosk before browsing the luscious selection on the sprawling grounds. There's really no better way to spend a sunny, warm day in the middle of February.
