Several Tuesday Gardeners visited Northwest Garden Nursery, west of Eugene, to see their beautiful display gardens and to purchase their hellebores, which are prized worldwide. We wandered the paths through woodland and rock gardens, interspersed with ornamental grasses, conifers, and flowering shrubs and trees. Among the garden beds are whimsical metal statues, stone mosaic work, and a small koi pond. Afterwards, we stopped for lunch at Our Daily Bread Restaurant in Veneta, where some of us indulged in homemade bread pudding—yum! On our way home, we stopped at Garland Nursery in Corvallis to satisfy our early spring yearning for plants.
A full and fun day! Digger Deb
