Full episode of Portlandia. I'm partial to this episode because there's a cat. And the jewelry making sketch. And the Kickstarter one. I'm thinking this season is even more accurately PNW. Yay! http://www.ifc.com/portlandia/videos/portlandia-cat-nap-full-episode

We didn't see them in the pumphouse, the stage we saw them at at Pickathon was slightly bigger. http://liveandbreathing.com/agesandages/agesandages-these-elbows

So...Everyone should have the Vegan with a Vengeance cookbook & make the Raspberry Blackout cake. It's the best cake. Now we have to figure out how you go about cutting a heart shaped cake though. But it sure is cute. http://www.emmakat79.blogspot.com/2012/02/happy-valentines-day.html

NYE Pizza! So happy they opened the location by Powell's today. And Bauhaus seems like an appropriate music choice NYE here too...

Introduction

I am an architectural designer working toward my license. I have a M.Arch from University of Washington and a B.S. in Arch from Ohio State University. 

I've recently moved back to the northwest, Portland, OR, after living in Chicago for two years while my partner, Charles, got his M.Arch at IIT. While there I volunteered at FLW's Robie House giving tours. It was fun, but we decided we were more suited to the northwest.

What else can be said? The rose garden is a delightful place to be. The season seems to be fairly long - from mid- to late spring into the fall. Don't be scared off by any overcast skies or rain - the roses are lovely to see with just a bit of rain or dew on the petals. If you go in the winter you'll see trimmed down bushes covered in a bit of moss. It's still a nice park with the occasional view of downtown Portland, the sculptural fountain by Lee Kelly. However, summer is the best time for roses, and we are the City of Roses after all, so go enjoy it!

Easily the most serene place in Portland, with one of the best views when it's not too cloudy. I have a membership and have been many times, but have found there is no one season I prefer. In autumn a large Japanese maple (known to local photographers as "the tree") turns a beautiful red-orange. Spring sees Camellia, Irises and Wisteria in bloom. Rainy autumn and winter weather helps keep the moss in the Flat Garden vibrant. The garden also has many interesting events including crafts sales, bonsai, ikebana displays, and has had some exciting (if small) art shows in the tea house. They also offer classes on fence making - you might notice hand tied fences throughout the park on your visit. I haven't yet taken one of these classes - but this gives you a sense of the amount of craftsmanship and work that has gone in this park. I highly recommend becoming a member if you live in Portland, or if not, keep an eye out for frequent free days. Even on a free day when the park is crowded it manages to retain its serenity. It's an excellent destination to take out of town guests - particularly in the summer due to its proximity to the International Rose Test Garden. The park is reachable via a path from the garden - however if your visitors are older - be aware there is a regularly running tram that can help get them up to the park.
