     Today's blog will be short because I am getting ready to go to Las Vegas for Photoshop World.  My daughter and her husband and I will be driving there--it is a some 19 hour drive from Portland where my daughter lives, so we will be taking two days, each way.  Photoshop World is a big convention of Photoshop geeks and photography geeks.  It should be lots of fun.  I will be back in a week and hopefully will have some photos to share with you then.  For today, I leave with you some pictures I took of my garden this morning.


  1. So, this is the first time I've seen a long view of your gardens... OMG! fabulous, just fabulous! I'm having an attack of major zone envy here. everything is absolutely gorgeous. Have a great time at Photoshop World....

  2. Oh yes, the Bonfire begonia at the feet of the Ensete, fabulous! love it

  3. Your garden is amazing as always! I don't know how you can do all of that and still have hours in the day to sleep. Thanks for more great photographs of your stellar garden!

  4. Finally! You have a garden blog so I can visit whenever I want.
    Great writing and amazing photos, I'll be back.

  5. I have been viewing thousands of pictures relating to nature, flowers, landscapes, animals etc.,none has captivated me the way your beautiful pictures did. I am so impressed. If you will give the permission to download and share them with my face book friends, I will be honoured. Thank you. Egbert Lau Toronto, Canada
