Industry in the area was benefited by its location on the newly laid railroad. Workers in Portland made their living in lumber, fishing, growing wheat, and raising cattle. Over the years Portland has grown to be the second largest city in the Northwest. We wandered around the garden for quite some time, marveling at the beautiful flowers and plants and enjoying the kids as they enjoyed the huge koi!
But one of the best parts of this visit was our lunch at the Tea Room. We ordered several items and shared them all around. Pictures do a much better job than words ever could to describe this beautiful place…. While they played, and wore their parents out, I took a walk along one of the paths and realized for the first time that I was actually in the rain forest…. We wandered around Portland for several days, enjoying the sites using their mass transit.

I cannot believe I did not take a picture…guess I was too busy buying books, and wondering how on earth I would get them all home in my luggage…on a plane with weight restrictions. Oh, how the two kids enjoyed those! And on our way out of Portland, we stopped at another of their magnificent parks for a picnic lunch…as we headed to the coast, and a beach house on a hillside.
My Sweet Cherry Rose
But more about that in another post! Some of the best sweet cherries, known as Bing cherries, are grown in the American Northwest. Here is a slightly adapted recipe for a sweet cherry caflouti from the Portland Farmers Market. A caflouti is a custrdy cake which originated in Southern France…and it is really delicious.

Traverse City, which is about 90 miles southwest of where I am in Harbor Springs, is the cherry capital of the world. Cherries are so abundant here that they feed the country with 75 percent of its cherries. The first cherry tree was planted on the Old Mission Peninsula in Grand Traverse in , and there cherries discovered their ultimate feeding ground: Lake breezes, cold winters, and sandy soil.
At least a lucky few of us got to enjoy the cherries before they were wiped out, in the form of the most ethereal, breathtaking flowering trees ever to grace fresh grass and rolling hills. This was my first spring up north, and I felt nearly guilty nearly watching spring cherry blossom beauty unfold out of winter fallow.
