More from the PNW-The Oregon Garden.

 Kick off for the annual garden-tourista trip took place at the Oregon Garden Resort..can there be anything better than a hotel that is adjacent to a botanical garden ? I think not. And to sweeten the pot, your room rate includes unlimited entry to the garden, sunup to sundown. Photographers rejoice- the golden hour is yours !

  This was a stumble-upon garden for me, visited on a whim after several years of visiting the Portland area unaware of it's existence. Well maintained with almost something for everyone -if you are a succulent die-hard this may not be the place for you. And why should it be ? This is Oregon-conifers , hardwoods and herbaceous perennials are suitable here and presented to their advantage in the garden.







There was a railroad garden !


Conifers.. and we are told the collection is due to be doubled.















  And incidentally, the room rates at the resort are beyond reasonable, especially if you can go midweek.
