Adelman Gardens Peony Paradise | Four

This is the fourth and last post on Adelman Gardens Peony Paradise in Salem, Oregon.  It's a shame that certain flowers are not in bloom all year long, like peonies but that is nature's way.

We have to enjoy them while they are here.  The last photo here is of their great water feature they have in the middle of the garden.

If you missed the first three posts here are all the links to the series: Post One...Post Two...Post Three

Please support by blog by checking out these recommended books on Peonies sold through Amazon: (I receive a small commission if you purchase a product)

1) Peonies by Allen Rogers  (Al Rogers has been growing peonies since childhood, and this book represents more than 60 years' experience. Peonies are treasured by gardeners for their longevity, lush foliage, rich fragrance, and landscape uses. Captured within these pages are not only the flavor, charm, and history of the peony and its hybridizers but also expert information about the genus Paeonia and its many cultivars.)

2) Peonies (Firefly Gardener's Guide) ( The dazzling peony with its generous blooms is revered and treasured in North America as it has been for centuries in its country of origin, China. Peonies is a comprehensive guide to selecting and growing the best species and hybrids for every region and garden condition.)

3) The Gardener's Peony [Illustrated] ( The Chinese have been growing tree peonies for 1600 years but these exotic plants still make a novel addition to the Western garden. A full-size plant bearing dozens of flowers is an awesome sight and the selection here includes the best of the Chinese and Japanese cultivar ranges, the classic hybrids and the sought-after hybrids raised by Arthur Saunders in the 1930s that range in colour from yellow to mahogany-red.)

Old Locomotives and Cabooses On Their Last Rail

Besides old cars and trucks, old trains...locomotives, rail cars and cabooses are right up there with making for the coolest photos. Especially, to photograph and convert into High Dynamic Range Photography (HDR).

Adelman Gardens Peony Paradise | Two

This is the second post on Adelman Gardens Peony Paradise (See Post One Here).  Peonies are absolutely beautiful flowers and really didn't realize how many different varieties there are until we visited their Gardens.

If you are visiting Oregon in the springtime this is definitely a must place to visit.  You might think you are seeing dew drops on the peonies...it's was raining pretty good when I took these photos.

Dugout Canoes At Capt. William Clark Park

Here are photos of dugout canoes at Capt. William Clark Park in Washougal, Washington. 

They have been in the park for awhile and they are heavy. I doubt anyone is going to haul them away any time soon.

Milwaukie Sunday Farmers Market

One of the coolest Saturday and/or Sunday Farmers' Market is the one in Milwaukie, Oregon.  Yes, you have the spelling right..ie instead of ee.


Milwaukie is a Frog's Hair distance from Portland (the next place south) and is a fairly small community...but they don't think small.


Here are a few shots of the Market place...nothing artsy, just a few casual shots. Enjoy!
