ANLD Garden Tour

The Garden Tour for the Association of NW Landscape Designers is coming up on June 28th!  This is a wonderful opportunity to view 6 varied gardens on Portland’s Eastside. It’s a great way to spend a day with friends, perhaps with a stop or two thrown in for shopping at Garden Fever or Portland Nursery or taking a few minutes for a quick lunch at a neighborhood restaurant or food cart!

I designed a renovation for my client's back yard which is included on the tour.

Summer in the Garden

The Hardy Plant Society of Oregon provides opportunities to visit a bevy of personal gardens and specialty nurseries every summer through its OPEN GARDEN directory.  This is one of the major selling points for joining this wonderful group. What could be better than strolling through the garden of another plant lover, chatting with them about their challenges or favorite plants, and learning tips about how to care for that plant that you never can seem to grow. And for those of you with busy weekends, there are opportunities to visit many of the gardens on Monday evenings—a real summertime treat!

Don’t we all appreciate a little Inspiration and encouragement? Join the HPSO and you will be richly rewarded, not only in the summer but all year long.
