Dewy Grape Hyacinth

These little grape hyacinth live right outside my front door. I noticed the other morning that the dew drops hung on to each individual blossom, and had to run back inside to grab my camera :)

Taking a Stroll

Another photo from my recent stroll through the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens in Portland. This bridge leads from the parking lot area down to the main gardens and fountains. You can walk beneath it and are surrounded by water fowl.

Crystal Springs Waterfall

Due to the busy Easter weekend and my sons first birthday on Monday, I just was not able to get out and take any new photos. But I still have some that I took the weekend before at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Gardens to share. The gardens are beautiful, and have several small waterfalls, such as this one.

This building serves as the restrooms at a park I strolled through this weekend in Sellwood. Perhaps an odd subject for my lens to focus on, but I was intrigued by the ferns growing all over the roof, and the brick red paint against the forest greens.
