The Portland Nursery

Ever since I moved into my apartment, I haven’t stepped foot into a plant nursery. With no prospect to keep a plant alive more than a couple of hours at the paws of my kitten, it hadn’t crossed my mind that even thought I can’t keep plants in my home, I can still enjoy seeing them in nurseries and lose track of time just as much as I do in a bookstore. When I passed one on Saturday, I walked in the SE Division Portland Nursery¬†and took as many photos as my heart pleased.

I will try to visit seasonally. This time of year they had apples and pears locally grown that were delicious.

I almost took this cactus home. It only worried me that my apartment doesn’t get enough light for it to survive. And of course, some kitten’s paws might have been at risk.

All these are taken with a Canon T3i+50mm 1.8 lens, which I got over the weekend. I’ve been pretty happy with the results, but have missed my Nikon for some of the shots I took on this occasion.
