My own garden suffers some neglect as I head into the business trip season. Home again and gone again, a challenge to keep plants hydrated . So I'll look back once more to the July visit to the PNW and share some photos from Dancing Oaks , a destination nursery in Monmouth Oregon. Surrounded by bucolic farmlands, and sited on a sunny exposure against the hills, Dancing Oaks features lovely display gardens and a palette of interesting and well grown plants. And make sure you stop for lunch at the Pink House Cafe in Independence..recommended !
