Friday afternoon I visited Joy Creek Nursery, off Highway 30 in Scappoose, Oregon.
It's less than 20 miles outside Portland, but it feels very rural out here in the hills that overlook the Columbia River.
There's nothing too exotic here -- just some beautiful, sprawling demonstration gardens that look perfect for their country setting.
I fell in love with this Sambucus (and bought one two days later). Dark purple foliage, white and pink flowers. Where have you been all my life, gorgeous?
Bye, Joy Creek Nursery!
