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.
The Davis elders (can’t wait to see what kind of flack I’ll get for that reference) sit in Sue and Mona’s back yard next to the newly anointed chicken coop chez poulet.
Portland has a fascinating house/mailbox numbering system..
Local Urban farming!
A beautiful flower arrangement at Farm, the local organic restaurant we went to (Peas were in season!)
