Gardening in Portland OR is a dream come true. I’ve lived in places where the sun shines nearly every day. It drove me crazy. I love the plants that thrive in a desert climate, but not the heat or the predictability. So here I stay, with my honey, Richard, who named our little piece of ground ‘Delusional Drive’ and our cat, Sami, who fancies herself a wild animal until she comes in for a snack and a cuddle.

Portland, in general, is considered zone 8. We are close to the river and a little higher up, so I put us more at zone 7. Later blooming of most things would seem to bear me out.


So…welcome to Delusional Drive. Enjoy your visit. If you are new to our fantasy world, I hope you will introduce yourself and join in the conversation.
