“Rain shower” in the Japanese Garden. It rained steadily the whole time we were walking around the gardens, but at least it wasn’t crowded! After looking at all the photos, I noticed that most of them featured trees with yellow leaves. So I had to pick and choose – trying to decide which photos were the most interesting.
The Japanese garden is a traditional Japanese Garden occupying nine acres in the West Hills of Portland. It has eight garden spaces and a Cultural Village. Unfortunately, most things were closed due to the rain.
I had a great trip to Oregon thanks to my sister and her husband who took me to a variety of places where I was able to indulge my photographic desires. Being from New York and living in San Diego, I miss the vivid and colorful foliage of the fall season and very much enjoyed what the Oregon autumn had to offer.
