Lens-Artists Challenge #12 – Path
Tina’s theme for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge this week is Path.
We visit Mercy, my daughter, her hubby Will, and our granddaughter Autumn once a month. During one visit, we went to Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden which is a botanical garden located in southeastern Portland, Oregon, USA. It’s named for the numerous springs within the garden featuring more than 2,500 rhododendrons, azaleas and other plants with small lakes, paved and unpaved paths, fountain, and small waterfalls.
Beginning in early spring and continuing into summer, they provide a magnificent display of color. During the fall, many companion trees add dramatic coloring. Crystal Springs Lake surrounds much of the garden, attracting many species of birds and waterfowl. The rocks used to build the waterfalls and other features were gathered from Mt Hood and Mt Adams.
