After looking at Cee’s flower challenges I was looking through my flower photographs taken over a 10 year period in Oregon. Keep in mind that Oregon flower farmers commercially grow more flower than any place on earth. I’m too new to New England and too late in the season to know what varieties grow here. I’m just saying it will be difficult to match or surpass what I discovered in the Portland area. Woodburn, OR is the home to specialized flower growers. There’s the tulip farms at Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm, Swan Island Dahlia Farm, Bonnie Blooms Zinnias, and Stokman Acres for Peonies. I’ve been to every one of these and many more smaller businesses. They’re magnificent, a flower lover’s dream.
