Boring, Oregon ---) Anything but boring! (Massive Bandwidth warni

Was recently lucky enough to tag along with Bob Fincham to a few great gardens/nurseries in Oregon and here are a few dozen pictures I loaded for your viewing pleasure.

I've listed 'best guess' names to as many pictures as I can, though the accuracy may be questionable on some due to my poor memory and lack of plant tags.

Enjoy!
