Travel Challenge: Purple

DSC_0338

Yesterday, me and my best buddies went to visit the Fabyan Villa Museum. The Villa covers a lot of acreage and they used to have a rose arbor that led to the office of Mrs. Nelle Fabyan, the former owner of the estate. The rose garden and the office structure are no longer there and instead the arbor is now covered with clematis. Unfortunately we missed the blooming season and there was this purple one left.

    I use to collect them and my favorites are the double-petaled ones. I bet Portland would be a great place for gardening since it is almost always wet plus no harsh winter like here.

    You probably have to see it in late May. I wish they would replace the dead ones. Thanks for discovering the place. I really enjoyed it.
