Portland’s International Rose Test Garden is a beautiful walk from the NW 23rd neighborhood. I spotted this flower along the way.
Driving by the airport, I noticed daisies growing on the bank across the street. I parked at the nearest spot and walked back, taking pictures along the way. I met up with Ashley and Mousse. We walked through Orenco Station, then back to Dawson Creek where I took a picture of my favorite grove of trees.
I cleaned and filled the bird feeders one morning earlier this week. I asked Suzi how long she thought until we’d have visitors. She was confident our feeders would see use by that same afternoon. And she was right!
I was at the computer with my back to the feeders when Suzi said there were 30 birds at the feeders. I thought she was exaggerating. When I turned around, I scared them away to a nearby tree. I counted as they returned. This time, Suzi was wrong. There were more than 50 goldfinches on the feeders and on the ground beneath!
On the east bank of the Willamette River, ramps lead to the Marquam Bridge.
St. Johns Bridge has an elegance to it unmatched by other Portland bridges.
A straight line is not always the best path between two points.
I’m looking forward to walking across Tilikum Crossing.
Cathedral Park has a couple of docks along the Willamette River. One dock has this group of pilings at its land end.
