Portland’s Oldest Rose Garden

This past weekend I visited the Peninsula Park Rose Garden.  I had never been there before. The roses are in full bloom now. Everywhere you walked you got a whiff of their perfume.

Although the Portland Rose Garden in Washington Park is one of the more popular gardens in our area, the Peninsula Park Rose Garden is just as lovely. Older, but not as well known, the Peninsula Park Rose Garden located in North Portland is Portland’s first public rose garden. As you step into the sunken rose garden, you walk through lush paths, sweeping archways and over two acres packed with nearly 9,000 traditional rose plantings.

The octagonal bandstand north of the fountain was constructed in 1913. It was used for World War I patriotic demonstrations and is now the site for many weddings and concerts. There were two weddings going on while we were there.

The fountain in the center of the garden is over 100 years old.

Prefontaine In The Pearl

One of the things I love doing with friends is the First Thursday walk in the Pearl.  On one of my recent art walks, I came across this mural of Prefontaine.

  • Steve Roland “Pre” Prefontaine was an American middle and long-distance runner who competed in the 1972 Olympics. Prefontaine once held the American record in seven different distance track events from the 2,000 meters to the 10,000 meters. Wikipedia

Fall At Lan Su

It’s still Fall at the Lan Su Chinese Garden.  Beautiful colors. Stop by and a take a look.  The day I was there I attended a class on Feng Shui, had tea/almond cookies in the Tea House and enjoyed the garden.

I’ve been to this garden many times in NW Portland, but never in the month of November. Even with the rain, there were still Fall colors to be seen.

Connie Hansen Garden Central Oregon Coast

All the years I’ve lived in Oregon, I’ve been wanting to go to the Connie Hansen Garden in Lincoln City on the Central Oregon Coast. About a month ago, I decided it would be my first stop when I went to the beach. I wasn’t disappointed.

I sat on a bench and took in whiffs of Lilac, Rhodies, perennials, all the blooming flowers and listened to the birds for quite a long time. A relaxing and beautiful Spring Day.

If you’ve never been, make it a destination next time you’re headed to the Central Oregon Coast.

The Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn, Oregon is open for viewing until May 5.

There’s another tulip farm close by – 45 minutes from Portland – in Woodland, Washington Holland America Tulip Farm as well. I’ve never been to that one and I hope to get there next week.

Get outside and enjoy the tulips and Spring! Bring your boots.

Happy Easter 2013

I recently visited the Valley of Fire north of Las Vegas, Nevada. The rock formations took on images and this one reminded me of a bunny rabbit.

Stayton Jordan Covered Bridge.oregonsnapshots.wordpress.com

Stayton Jordan Covered Bridge

The original covered bridge was built in 1937, and originally traversed Thomas Creek with a 90 ft. span.

Before 1986, the Jordan Bridge spanned Thomas Creek in Linn County a few miles east of Scio. The bridge location had been the site for a dam, a cheese factory, a couple of mills and a general store.

When Linn County announced the Jordan Bridge was to be replaced in 1986, Stayton residents asked if they could take title to the structure. The rebuilding process took nearly two years, and the new bridge was eventually dedicated in June 1988.

On December 20th 1994, Christamas lights ignited the roof and the bridge burned to the ground. Local citizens worked through 1997 and 1998 to build a new covered bridge at the site. This new bridge was dedicated in September 1998 and today it is part of a park.
