I can't believe I missed almost a week in my blogging. I'm late on a deadline, and updating the blog just didn't seem as important. However, I did finally get my pictures from Portland's Chinese Garden uploaded to my photo gallery at Piccassa.
The garden is lovely, an oasis of serenity in the midst of a modern city. Even though it was quite chilly that morning, my friends and I lingered, exploring every nook and cranny. A few plants were in bloom, including the camellias, but I'm sure it will be even prettier in a month or so.
The early March cold made my left hand, the one with tendonitis, cramp up, so I'm surprised I was able to take as many photos as I did. It would have helped if I'd been dressed more warmly and if I hadn't managed to temporarily misplace my thumb stabilizer. That didn't keep me from thoroughly enjoying the gardens though.
I'm adding a little slideshow here for your enjoyment.
What's your favorite garden? I always enjoy the one at the Huntington Library.
