      Thank you ;c)

      Beware them roots on the third pic- it’s a guarantee face-plant into the ground if you’re not watching your step.

      I say this only as a courtesy, of course.

      • The courtesy is appreciated. You well know what klutzes bears can be when their fainting logs get moved around by the fairy folk.

  3. Wow!! This is gorgeous! I did not see this in Portland, Oregon when I was there in 1990s. This must be new 🙂 Thank you for showing me one of my memorable places.

      I have yet to visit those gardens, myself. Perhaps the city keeps them in a top secret location… ;c)

  4. I’ve been thinking of emigrating to Portlandia for some time now — I think I will, just for those trees! That shot of the roots with the red leaves.. lights up every single one of my Gothic buttons… ^_^

      Those roots are something crazy! Like tentacles… you just know they’re going to come alive one day in a nightmare.

      Red on black- indeed, awesome Gothic colors! ;c)
