1. This was a beautiful moment in the garden last week. The sidewalk is about six feet past where this lovely young artist is sitting. This part of the garden is inspired by hiking trails in the Mt. Hood Wilderness. There are lots of natives: rhododendron, thimbleberry, Indian plum, bunchberry, snowberry, sorrel (sour grass), and red osier dogwood.  #garden #artist #wild #natives #nativeplants #wildlife #pacificnorthwest (at Westmoreland Neighborhood)
