Portland Japanese Garden

Stone Lantern and Waterfall at the Portland Japanese Garden. I've always loved botanic gardens, and the Pacific North West has no shortage of beautiful gardens and parks, but one of my favorites is the Portland Japanese Garden. They even have some great Bonsai demonstrations and classes, just in case you're a crazy plant person like me and you want to try to get a little taste of a Japanese garden at home.

Oregon Garden Fronds

Another image from our recent stroll through The Oregon Gardens in Silverton. Everything was enjoying the nice spring day, it looked like every plant was in a race with its neighbor to see how much new growth it could get out in the beautiful afternoon light. These beautiful fern fronds were no exception, you could almost imagine them unfurling as you watched.

Dr Seuss' Garden

This ever so slightly other-worldly garden is at the beautiful Seaside Gardens in Carpinteria. Seaside Gardens is both a Botanical Garden and a nursery. So you can not only be inspired, but they can send you home with the plants to make your own garden paradise. (and no I don't work for them, but I really love to wander their beautiful gardens with my camera).
