After spending Sunday with family, the living and the only remembered, we were now ready to explore the gardens of the Willamette Valley. We limited ourselves to the area between Woodburn and Salem, since there were more here than we could possibly cover.
We had a list, and decided to make our first stop at a small nursery in the area of other gardens we planned to see.
Egan Gardens was perfect to get the day started - just the right size to see everything, talk to a few of the staff, and even buy a few plants.
There were some empty plant tables, which is a good sign for the business.
There were more greenhouses, but we had plenty to see in this one.
This ancient apple tree is the perfect example of persistence.
If you have to be in the dog house, this one would be quite pleasant, with it's living roof!
And these are the plants that came home with us from Egan Gardens.
