This is an amazing garden. The gardener has integrated a number of elements; change in slope, materials (stone, bark, wood,) a wide variety of native plants, and an attractive fence into a naturalistic garden plan that will continue to delight in every season.

On The Street…Oregon City, Oregon

Welcome to “Historic Oregon City”

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of going on a walking tour of Oregon City with Peter Chausse. Peter is an instructor with The Heritage Institute / Antioch University. He has owned and operated, “Peter’s Walking Tours of Portland,” since 1995. (Peter is a natural teacher, the tour was informative, well organised, and very enjoyable. I look forward to future tours- I hear he does some great ones of Portland.- ) If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend you book a tour with Peter. http://www.walkportland.com/
