This very autumnal view, which I'm sharing for Wednesday Vignette, is from the garden of Vanessa Gardner Nagel, who hosted the recent Portland Garden Bloggers Plant Swap. I was fortunately feeling well enough to make the trip down to Portland for it. I'd heard wonderful things about Vanessa's garden, and it did not disappoint! The sun glowed through the leaves of this redbud.
It was wonderful to see garden blogger friends again (for the first time this year), and I came home with free plants! We even stayed overnight at a local hotel, and I shopped for more plants at both Cistus and Joy Creek Nursery. I ran out of room in the car. If I had picked up even one more plant I would have had to leave our suitcase behind.
