Native Plants Sale

This morning was the annual¬†Tualatin Hills Native Plant Sale, and we went in search of a native honeysuckle, in particular, and a couple of other native plants that caught our fancy. We don’t have a lot of garden area prepared yet, so we kept our purchases to a minimum. But it was exciting to see what choices they had, and I can’t wait for our big forthcoming project/dream: my native plants corner!


Celebrating Gardens: Portland’s Japanese Garden


My husband and I visited the Portland Japanese Garden this week. After our lovely experience with the Seattle Japanese Garden in June, we were anxious to see the Portland garden. It was a beautiful day and we loved every minute we spent there. We are planning to return often and enjoy the changing seasons in this exquisite garden.
