13 minutes in a garden

This is Chris's day off and, since it wasn't raining, we headed up the coast to Lincoln City. May's the most beautiful month on the coast and all the rhododendrons are just coming into full bloom. We stopped briefly at the Connie Hansen Memorial Garden -- very tiny -- and slowly meandered about. A pathway leads out to a rhododendron dell; hostas grow thickly in the shade; and a bench sits surrounded by forget-me-nots and flaming orange rhodies. Just 13 minutes, but very refreshing. ©Carol Leigh
