Leach Botanical Gardens, Portland, Oregon


Two weeks ago we spent the weekend in Portland with friends. They took us to the Leach Botanical Gardens in Southeast Portland. I was surprised to learn of its existence, since I grew up not all that far away from it and lived in the area for 37 years. What a wonder in the city….

Arrived for a weekend with friends in Portland, a warm 97F, sat on patio and painted while waiting for them to return. A perfect start. Watercolor and ink, 5×8
