Springtime in Portland

I have never lived anywhere that spring was more glorious than Portland, OR. Each week beginning around March 1, something new comes into bloom. The sheer number of trees in the city, budding their bright green tiny leaves, is delightful. Here's proof:

Portland has a number of HUGE trees that have been designated Heritage Trees; they are protected. Here's my favorite, a beech that must be 8' in diameter.

  1. Well, I think I need to experience Portland in the spring. I have experienced in the summer (what summer?) and the winter (what hell).
