Which Portland neighborhood do you call home? Or, are you Moving to Portland?
Milwaukie to Oregon City
About Me:
I am the horticulture steward of a 21 acre senior living facility located just a couple hundred yards from the Willamette River in the great pacific northwest. After caring for this campus for the better part of 30 years I have been persuaded to share my experiances with others who are interested in the plant world. Hope you enjoy the journey.
What do you love about Portland?
Mild winters, mild summers, it's a great place to garden.
