A Trip to the Portland Japanese Gardens

This week we had a good friend visit us from San Diego. To celebrate, we took a day off of work and school to visit the beautiful Japanese Gardens in Portland (one of our favorite spots in the city!).

We spent the day exploring the different areas of the garden, enjoying the meandering paths and peaceful water features. The garden always has the ability to take your breath away with each turn but this time was especially enchanting with the subtle hints of fall gracing the thoughtfully placed maple trees.

What a wonderful and inspiring way to spend the day! We definitely feel refreshed and ready to get back to the design table.
