Sauvie Island Field
Last week when my friend Lake was visiting, we went out to Sauvie Island with my sister in law Norma. Both are manical gardeners so we stopped at the amazing Cistus Nursery. Their specialty is hardy exotics and there were many. The drive was gorgeous. I don`t think there is a more spacious place in Western Oregon. The area set aside for farming is all vast fields with magnificent banks of cottonwoods in the distance. It`s almost unbelievable how pastoral it is. In a twelve inch square, I`m trying to suggest such space.
