This is the last of my Oregon Garden collection. The Gaillardia above turned out to be one of my favorites. They are so bold and bright. It was definitely a blessing having the early morning rain.
This is the view of the main lawn from the Axis Fountain. They have quite a variety of gardens from Conifers and wetlands to a pet friendly and children’s garden.
The Day Lilies were abundant.
There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet.
My favorite was the Bosque Reflecting Ponds, a central plaza featuring four brick ponds and 40 planter boxes, each planted with a single tree.
The Signature Oak is an Oregon Heritage Tree that is more than 400 years old.
June was fortunately a perfect time to appreciate the bounty of color.
If you live in the Pacific Northwest and need to get away for a few days, I can easily recommend the Silverton area. The Oregon Garden Resort is a very nice place and they have frequent deals through Travel Zoo. They show movies in the Garden during the summer, in October scarecrows are displayed throughout.
And Silverton is a Happening Place with loads of activities planned throughout the year: A Bloom Quilt Show, Brewer’s Tasting Dinner at the Resort, Fireworks on the 4th of July, and a Car Show in August. Silver Falls State Park with the trail of ten falls is just a short drive. Here is a photo of Winter Falls (check out my earlier post: All Creation Sings His Praises).
So, just maybe I will see you there someday.
