Chinese Garden, Portland, Oregon
July 25, 2010
I just got back from Portland this evening and have about a million photos to go through. I thought I'd start off with a photo from The Chinese Garden, or Lan Su Yuan, in Portland Oregon. One of the many beautiful gardens, nurseries and garden centers I saw on my trip to the Perennial Plant Symposium this past week. In Chinese, Lan means orchid and Su means arise or awaken. It was built in conjunction with the Portland's sister city Sozhou. All of the beautiful hardscape, tiles, stones and sculptures came from China. This is really a lovely garden and a must see if you're in Portland.
I also ate lunch at their tea house in the garden. The food is wonderful and their tea selection impressive.
