Greetings from Portland!

Saturday, September 20, 2008

After a looooong day of travel, our group arrived safely in Portland for the Garden Writers Association annual conference. The air here is decidedly cooler and very refreshing, which I find especially helpful given my post-travel grogginess.

This picture is from the planting bed in front of our hotel. The plant palette here is very different from what we have back home in Florida and wonderful to look at. I'll no doubt have more pictures to share after I come back from this afternoon's garden tours.

The educational sessions also start today, and the trade show will wrap up this evening. Here's a shot of Tom Wichman talking to a conference attendee at the FNGLA booth.
