Portland’s Chinese Garden, in the fall

 

 

Last week I found myself in downtown Portland on a sunny morning with a free hour. While it was tempting to do a little shopping (after all it is scarves and sweaters season) instead I headed to the Lan Su Garden, I’d never visited in the fall and thought it might be a good time to see what they were up to. While the official low temperature has been as low as 30 degrees at the Portland Airport these Musa Basjoo were still looking lush, no sign of frost damage. Although some of the stalks had been wrapped. As I walked up to this small potted tree I thought someone had some fun placing red fruits and flowers on it… Nope! Those would be the real thing, Pomegranates…
