Springtime at The Grotto

S P R I N G T I M E 

  at  The  Grotto

I am awaked early by the bright morning sun. A rare and welcome sight this Spring in The Pacific Northwest.  This fills me with a sense of optimism and adventure.

The air is clear and the sky a happy blue as I set out to one of my favorite spots for contemplation and appreciation of nature and natural beauty.

The Grotto;  a beautiful botanical garden and spiritual shrine and retreat in my hometown of Portland, Oregon.

 Springtime is especially lovely here.

  4. This time of year is especially delicious here in the Pacific NW. Your Grotto is amazing. I have Shore Acres near me, but not within walking distance.
