There are still things to do

So winter is here, the clouds are around in quantity and usually grey. There is rain more often than most want. There is still hope! Between showers a few days ago, my daughter and I went to the Lan Su Chines Garden. Yes, it was cloudy, and a bit cool and grey. But it is still a very nice place to go to and visit. It is calming and relaxing and peaceful. It will be very nice to return in the summer when it is warm and all of the flowers are in bloom. Then you can sit and soak up the sun and the peace and quiet. The images on their website are very green and everything is in bloom. It is very inviting. So my images are not as bright and colorful, but we had a good time and look forward to a spring/summer visit. Their story in brief is that Portland’s sister city of Suzhou sent 65 workmen to build a 40,000 sq. ft. Suzhou style garden. They brought wood and boulders from the homeland to make it authentic. Be sure to check out the tea house, the calligraphy artist, and the fellow that does the images and posters. I love watching their techniques and artistry.
