Garden stuff – around town

by Rainbow Bobbins

Char and I hit up the Montavilla Farmers’ Market on Sunday. We bought some tasty sausages from Scratch Meats, cherries and iced coffee then took a stroll around the neighborhood. This one street in particular had some flower lovers. Gordon – who lives in the house below saw me outside with my camera and came out to investigate. He was kind enough to invite me to view the lovely backyard which he has been cultivating for years with his wife.

Their neighbor is an active member of the Portland Rose Society. Obviously! This picture does not do justice to the number of roses he managed to fit in his yard. It smelled lovely! What a gorgeous day to be out and about.
