I think it is one of those varieties of scented Pelargonium.

You have lots of photos from San Francisco and Sunnyvale, CA! I haven't went down there for the purpose of photography yet.

These are what I thought Pelargonium odoratissimum, photographed from SFO Zoo only. Are they same?

There are some other Pelargonium species that have scent as well. Did you smell the leaves? What they smelled like might help narrow things down.
