The Oregon Desert Retreat: A Virtual Tour

I love looking at the gardens of others.  Not just for ideas and inspiration but because each is so different and personal.  Beauty comes in so many varieties – like pears.  I love the idea of a rural retreat but I have to admit this garden is a little too off the beaten path even for me:

Our weekend home and its garden are located in the high desert of central Oregon, in part of a defunct 1940s perlite-mining community called Dant that has no telephones and no cars.  The last leg of the 110-mile journey from Portland entails crossing the Deschutes River by way of an old lifeboat attached to a cable.

Happy Gardening and remember to “bee” positive!
