April has been a wonderful month: Death Valley, Yosemite, Napa Valley Redwoods, and Oregon: Grants Pass and Silverton. Today, Sunday 4/30, I visited Oregon Gardens, 80 acres and 5 miles of horticultural treasures, many in bloom. My expectations were low, because the wild flowers are two or three weeks away, but the civilized plants are in spring mode. In fact, a few were finished or nearing the end of
their run, while a few more were getting ready. All in all, I can’t imagine a more complete show than was provided today.
Once again it rained all night and was cloudy until around noon, then gradually turned into a beautifully sunny day, cloudy tomorrow for the drive to the coast of Oregon, where I will spend the next week.
