Friday Zen

Here’s photo I took out at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden on Wednesday. If you get the chance you should head out there right now. All the trees are in full blossom, and the Rhodies are starting to bloom as well. It’s $3.00 to get it, but free on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. If you’ve never been there it’s a great place for a first date, lots of secluded alcoves, or to take your kids and feed the ducks. There are paths that drop you into ponds with waterfalls, and some gorgeous views. It’s over by Reed College. Check it out and bring your camera!

    I agree, I discovered the beauty of Rhoddies there. Well worth the three dollars. I remember seeing a crazy goose there once freaking out and on another occasion seeing a goose walking about with a lady like they were best of friends… animal planet. I may have to visit this Sunday, weather allowing.

    Thanks for the reminder of this wonderful place.

    I absolutely love the place. It’s fun to go through the seasons and see what’s in bloom. I did some photos in the fall when all the leaves where changing and captured a great picture of a blue heron perched on a wooden bridge next to a huge tree with orange and red leaves. It’s also a fun people watching place. Kids go nuts there running through all the secret paths and feeding the ducks and geese.
