Portland Gardens: Japanese & Rhododendron

We were blessed with some unseasonably beautiful weather last month.
I left Ryan alone with his studies and visited some of Portland's beautiful gardens with my parents.

It's getting to be my favorite time of year in the pacific northwest, where the skies are clear and the rain gives us a break for a couple of months.  This allows plenty of time for long walks, picnics, boat rides, and weekend getaways.  I'm currently compiling my summer to-do list and am planning local excursions and events to make up for the summers we were away in Asia.  

It feels really good to be home.
