As you walk through the maze-like walkways through the different plant habitats, stay quiet and listen to the whispering of the giant, ancient Oak trees as they talk to each other in the hot summer breeze. Monarch and Western Tiger Butterflies flutter in and out of the native Showy Milkweed plants and stop to drink nectar out of the sticky pink blossoms. This place is magical to me in the summer especially, filled with a quiet splendor and the brilliant showcase of nature. Just as a garden should!
On May 12, 2018, The Oregon Garden will have their Spring time "Digging in the Dirt" event. Come and bring the kids and spend the day helping to plant the annuals that will brighten the Garden throughout the hot days of summer.
These happy annuals bring food to the thousands of bumble and honey bees that visit this very peaceful and special place.
It rains in Oregon a lot and that is why The Oregon Garden is so beautiful all year long! So go take a kid along and have fun digging in the dirt! But in case it rains..
Don't forget to throw in the Rainy Dayz of Oregon Pull-Over Play Clothes!
