I was not specifically looking for this spot at The Japanese Garden, but I recognized it immediately in person. Once back east, I was able to confirm. The framing is not exactly the same and the flora is 7,878 days older, however…This is Captain Jean-Luc Picard and groundskeeper Boothby tending a flower bed at Starfleet Academy in San Francisco. I must have just missed them!
