This Spring

This was my first spring in the Pacific Northwest, and I did not anticipate the beauty that came along with it.  Even though this past winter wasn’t as dreary and rainy as it could have been (or so they say), the spring colors were definitely welcomed.

There are numerous of public and private gardens here.  (I’m also getting my hands dirty in planting my own garden, but there isn’t a lot to show for yet.)  In addition to visiting Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival in early April, I also visited another tulip farm, a lilac garden, an iris garden, and a peony garden.  Last week, I also visited Portland’s famous International Rose Test Garden, but I’m still in the process of editing those photos.

Unfortunately, I am unable to capture the scent of these flowers through my photos.  I wish there was a way to bottle up the scents and let it permeate through my home.  You will just have to take my word for it.  Or, better yet, visit a garden near you.
