Christmas at the Oregon Garden was cold and foggy, it was icy at times, and then we got a perfect dusting of powdery snow on the morning of our departure. But before we drove off, I dashed out into the garden one last time to photograph the festive dressed-in-white landscape during the winter season.
Winter landscapes might at first appear barren and grey, but there are plenty of color spots if you look closely! I encountered lots of birds throughout the garden. There were ruby-crownded kinglets, varied thrushes, song sparrows, Oregon juncos and spotted towhees. I even spotted a lone hummingbird.
Many of the trees and shrubs throughout the garden were loaded with berries. In addition to looking great in my pictures, they also serve as food for our local bird population.
Another thing I really liked were all the creative bird houses in the garden. I’m sure I missed some!
I hope you enjoyed virtually walking through this winter wonderland with me.
Happy Friday and have a great weekend,
