Any day without rain is a pleasant day in the Pacific Northwest, so when I found myself working up at the Oregon Garden Resort, I made sure I took time to stroll the lovely setting of The Oregon Garden below the resort. Even in the dead of winter I found much to inspire. The Golden Yucca below was quite vivid.
I have always enjoyed the silhouettes of trees...
...even if it is just so that bird nests are easier to find.
Winter Jasmine in a pot livens up the doorway.
Lightening-like white branches accentuate the shape of this weeping birch.
The Gate in the Children's Garden is entertaining in any weather.
A train chugging along through the Children's Garden delights visitors of all ages.
While I was browsing through the books in the Visitor Center, I picked up information on their annual Quilt Show - Stitches in Bloom - that is being held January 27th and 28th, so it looks like I might be taking a trip north again for the quilt show and another stroll through the gardens.
