Approaching from the street, it's obvious that we're in for a treat!
The opposite side of the front garden.
Ricki admiring this path of Leptinella 'Brass Buttons.' Linda was so generous that when someone admired a plant in her garden, she pulled out a spade and started digging a bit to share!
The brass button path leads to this calm seating area behind the house.
Our host talking about her success with her Acacia pravissima, the monster being admired. She planted it only a year ago thinking that it would probably die during the winter. It's now heavy with bloom and a huge focal point in her back garden.
Scott, Rhone Street Gardens and Heather, Just a Girl With a Hammer showing off the impressive size of this cordyline.
Euphorbia wulfenii and one of the lamiums make a sweet combination!
Loree, Danger Garden, and Alison, Bonnie Lassie talking with the kids who kept us entertained.
A beautiful garden,
Who could ask for anything more? Thanks again to all the wonderful Portland bloggers and especially to our host, Lynda, a Washingtonian, for such a fun get together!
Here are links to the blogs of those in attendance stolen directly from Rainy Day Gardener:
Oh gosh, forgot to mention all of the free plants! I'd never been to a plant swap before and it was amazing to bring some extra things I had started from cuttings, (I have a hard time throwing cuttings away when I prune plants.) and swap them for treasures from other people's gardens.
Tomorrow we'll continue with the Highway 30 nursery visits.
