Garden Bed anyone?

At the Farmers Market last week, I spotted this clever way to advertise their own product.  Isn't it clever?  I would love to have a raised box for a garden but alas, there is no room!

Purple ain't half bad either!

These were so inviting when my friend and I were walking around a neighborhood in the Nob Hill district in Portland.

Burnside Bridge

This bridge raises for tall ships.  Every year for the Rose Festival, the tall ships come in to help Portland celebrate.

Old Town (Portland) famous sign

The people that own the sign used to have a business in the building below but now are gone and want to sell the sign.  The city has asked to buy it and will alter it to their liking in the future.

Portland City Hall, Bell and Gardens

They have a nice little set up here with beautiful architecture, the bell that rings and the beautiful gardens.  No space wasted!

Sidewalk art in the city

Caught these with my camera recently when I was walking around Portland.  One thing I have noticed is that Portland likes its art!

Wild roses . . .

Was waiting for a bus when I spotted this wild rose bush and had to take out my camera. 
Was glad I had to wait a few minutes for the bus.
