The Rhododendron Garden

Yesterday the weather hit 80 degrees in Oregon! (Yes, here in the Northwest our lives revolve around the weather - that's why I mention it so much. I'd link to all the posts where I talk about the weather, but I'm pretty sure I'd have to link to nearly all my posts.) Josh and I are homebodies, so usually we love nothing more than spending the evening at home, lounging around on the couch and watching TV and reading. But 80-degree weather is one of the few things that gets us outside! We took a trip out to the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden in SE Portland last night, and had a picnic dinner on a bench next to the pond while watching the sunset.

  1. Lovely photos! Looks like a great place and a romantic time!

  2. Your pictures are really great! And - I love the shoes! Yay for 80 degrees!

  3. it's not just you, we are all obsessed with talking about the weather. Though I think my weather lately sounds more like "Gray Skies" than yours. It's been overcast for what feels like an eternity. I mean, yes, there were two nice days, but they were in between 10 days of rain.

    So, loving your sun, and sandals.

  4. Oh wow, what a lovely place! It's rainy and bleh here still, wish it were 80!

  5. Wow. That place looks amazing! I'll have to make time to visit it!
    It was so nice running into you! I'm sure it will happen again. :)
