Though I couldn’t attend the 2014 Garden Blogger’s Fling, I visited Portland in 2008 for a Garden Writers Association meeting and was astounded by the many exuberant and creative home landscapes, some squeezed onto the tiniest lots. This garden in particular, which was just a few paces down the street from the featured tour garden, deserves a gold star — don’t you think?
