We went and visited Portland over July 4th and had a blast. Aside from amazing craft beers (July is Portland craft beer month - sense any redundancy in that?), local produce, great chefs, and lots of outdoor activities, I also discovered that Portland is a city of gardeners. Here is just a sampling of what I saw on one walk through Sue and Mona's neighborhood.
A beautiful flower arrangement at Farm, the local organic restaurant we went to (Peas were in season!)
