Deepwood Estate, Salem, Oregon

By the time we got to Deepwood Estate in Salem, Memorial Day Monday had warmed up considerably and we appreciated the shade of hundred year old trees. 

The house was built in 1894, and has had several owners. The formal gardens were commissioned in 1929 by the last owner, who lived here until 1968. The house is open for tours, but was not open on Memorial Day.

 In the conservatory. 

 Entering the formal gardens.

 Old apple trees persist. 

 Under the shady arbor.
 Old vines create a roof overhead. 

 Nature trails lead into the wooded area.

 This sun room looked like a great place to hang out.

And then since we were in Salem, the state capitol, and there was still some afternoon left, we went there next.


  1. You are doing a very good job diverting your attention away from politics. I've never seen so many beautiful gardens. Have fun while you can.

  2. Each garden offers something different, I was enthralled with the conservatory such a great place for relaxing after all that gardening.

  3. I like the shape of hedges that are curved and round.

  4. I would spend all my time in that sunroom :)

  5. Lovely. Another fine garden. I"m running out of superlatives. :-)

  6. free tours, thanks, lovely place to wander around

  7. What a cool house and gardens! Thanks for the tour!

  8. Can't believe how many gardens you visited in one day and you aren't done yet. Keep them coming. Cute pic of you under the arbor

  9. Thank you for sharing all these beautiful places with us, Linda.
