The Portland Japanese Gardens & Rose Gardens


My morning at the Portland Japanese Garden...

This morning before opening the store I visited the Portland Japanese Gardens. I love how peaceful the gardens are. The shelter pictured above is one of my favorite places to sit in the gardens. There was a couple who was walking ahead of me and they ducked into the shelter for a bit of canoodling, who could blame them?

The Portland Rose Gardens...

The Portland Rose Gardens are right down the way from the Japanese Gardens so I walked through them on my way down to my store. I have always loved the little building that houses the restrooms at the Rose Gardens. It looks like an old cottage that you would find in the English countryside with moss, ferns and vines growing on it.
