Portland's Mill Ends Park: World's Smallest

A fairly well-known bit of Portland trivia, is that Portland's Forest Park is the largest urban forest in the United States.  A lesser-known fact is that Portland is also home to the world's smallest park - according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

 

Mill Ends Park is located in downtown Portland, right in the middle of Naito…

I Opine, You Nod (and blink drowsily)

Some notes:

 

Tea Partiers, please pay no attention to the follicularly-challenged billionaire. He is fucking with you. I regret the blunt language, but really, he is engaging in ego masturbation before our very eyes. He just doesn't bother with the curtained window and the coin slot. Seriously, if this man actually becomes a contender for the office, I will chew one of my many hats (and ya'll…

Spring Blooms at Crystal Springs

One of my early posts on this blog was a complete profile of Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden.  I visited the garden two days ago, in the evening, and thought I'd share a few pictures from my walk.  Most of the Rhododendrons have not quite bloomed.  A few have, and I'm sure a lot of the others will be bursting into bloom very soon.  But there are lots of other…

Red-flowering Currant: an Early-Blooming Oregon Native

Whether you're creating an all-native landscape or just looking to add some early interest to your yard, the Red-flowering currant (Ribes sanguineum) is one good choice.  It's a drought-tolerant NW native, and the abundant red to pink flowers that each shrub produces are a good source of nectar for many native pollinating insects (such as Mason bees).  The…

Portland's Urban Growth Boundary: Battle Lines Being Drawn

When it comes to government and planning in the Portland metro area, there's possibly nothing as controversial as the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB).  Some Portland residents don't like the idea of increased density that the UGB encourages.  Farmers naturally want to preserve nearby farmland, and anytime there's a proposed modification or expansion of the UGB, the fur is sure to fly.

Hanging baskets & Containers

Have you ever bought an empty hanging basket, potting soil and two or three plants to go in it, then you patiently watch it grow, but it never really fills out like those you buy at nursery's? Here's the trick...



#1: when planting a hanging basket, fill it. 5 plants in a 10" basket and 7 plants in a 12". Get rid of most of the dirt around the starter plant and smash your plants together in their new pot. When you do this, the roots have a better chance of spreading out and…
