The Sauvie Island Garden of Jane Hartline and Mark Greenfield
The property is a large one with gardens all around the house and a pond further out. A trail extends around the pond and that is where most of these photos were taken.
|Pacific Ninebark (Physocarpus capitatus)|
|Snowberry (Syphoricarpos albus) is also in abundance here.|
|Grand Fir (Abies grandis)|
The garden serves as an educational labatory and informative signs are placed along the trails. This sign describes the Willamette valley prairie which has been duplicated in the above photo.
|In the distance, you can see the Sauvie Island bridge which is the only way onto the island. Portland is to the east.|
|At another point along the pond trail, you get a clear view of Mt. Saint Helens in Washington.|
|Look closely around the ground or in the trees and wildlife is abundant.|
|Oregon Grape (Mahonia aquifolium)|
|This huge Kerria brings back memories of our Alabama garden.|
