Visions of beauty everywhere

 Last weekend I was fortunate to attend some of the open gardens during the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon Study Weekend in Portland, and I saw so many beautiful things, I'm still full of them. I wanted to share some of them. These are all from gardens in Portland except the peonies--they were at the Portland Saturday Market.

You can't see me—I'm hiding

Too lush for words

Rose arbors
Every week from mid-spring through mid-fall, members of the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon open their gardens for visiting. You can find them by joining HPSO, which you'll find at this website.
