Last week we took a short four day trip around Oregon. Our first stop was the Oregon Garden located in Silverton.
Because of the late and wet spring we have had the garden wasn't quite in full bloom yet. There were some beautiful theme gardens as well as fountains and walking trials.
Here are a few of the MANY photo's I took.
My grandfather always had such a beautiful yard when I was growing up. They lived in the Columbia River Gorge, (Cascade Locks, Oregon to be exact). There was always something in bloom. I know I didn't appreciate it that much as a kid but I sure have a love of beautiful gardens and flowers now.
After leaving the beautiful Oregon Garden we headed over the Cascade Mountains to Sisters, Oregon. What a fun little town that was. It has an old west charm without being too cow-boyish.
I will be posting about that tomorrow.
