Can you hear the leaves crunching underfoot?
water striders and
sunlit autumn afternoons
always float my boat.
Late October was the perfect time to visit the Oregon Garden for fall colors.
Four large brick reflecting pools and and forty brick planters occupy this garden plaza.
Each brick planter contains one Pacific Sunset Maple tree.
Some of these planters are built right into the reflection pools,
others line the paths through this plaza,
which is knowns as The Bosque.
The Bosque is one of my favorite spots at the Oregon Garden.
