Inspiration: Portland Gardens

So about a month ago we took some time off to explore the Pacific Northwest. One our favorite and most inspiring days came when we trekked over to Rose and Japanese Gardens in Portland, OR.

We had heard about the Rose Garden, but don't think we could really image the number of roses we'd discover there. Walked away with a year's supply of Stop and Smell the Roses quips.

Then we made the short walk up to the Japanese Gardens. We can honestly say this is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places we've ever been. Could have spent all day admiring the work of the gardeners. True artist.
