Travel Plans

Tags :

I love to travel and next week I’m getting the opportunity to go some place I’ve never been–Oregon.  I’ll be traveling to the APLD International Landscape Design Conference in Portland and the Hood River Valley and I’m very excited about it.

These conferences are an important part of my professional life.  They give me access to people and places that I might not otherwise have, they introduce me to new (to me) ideas and they give me a chance to get my finger on the pulse of what my peers are doing.  Hopefully I will find the time to blog about what I see–I always take hundreds of garden photos, many of which I share here.

So it’s time to pack (actually do the laundry first), print out my e-tickets, and set off on an adventure.  Yippee!

  1. Wow! That picture makes me think of the Brian Bowers song that was written about Seattle:

    Out on the road, we tell all the turkeys
    Yes it’s always raining and the sun never shines.
    BUT ALL THE NATIVES KNOW WHEN THE MOUNTAIN LIFTS HER SKIRTS
    THE VIEW FROM HOME CAN ALMOST MELT YOUR MIND.

    it couldn’t possibly be the same mountain, could it?

  2. Can’t wait to see you, my friend! We will see what we can get ourselves in to…supposed to be beautiful over the weekend.

  4. SC,
    Looks like I’ll just miss you in P’town, but you’ll be intellectually engaged w/APLD.
    I’m excited about my itinerary, including new green walls/roofs since my last visit.

    Looks like we both get to hook up with JeanAnnVK! So I think we’re both looking at some fun times. Have a great trip, Alice

    Thanks for all the invites, tips, and near misses (AJ) that were posted here and on Twitter & FB. It’s always good to get out of town to somewhere you’ve never been!

  6. Have a wonderful time… can’t wait to see your post Portland posts!
