I noticed the Weeping Willow while in the car, dear Peter, and was thrilled that we could see it from this boat launch/park area! Such a vivid chartreuse - is that redundant? - and so early to leaf out and brighten my image! Thanks for enjoying this view (O:

Dearest GW, thank you so much for your lovely and descriptive comment! Wishing you a fine weekend and warm hugs as well! Best fishes from your own LTM (O:

It was easy to forget that I was in a big city here, dear Sile - I find that I enjoy rivers very much. Thank you, dear friend (O:

I see Nick is blowing up Oregon now! He has wrecked Norway ;-)

Beautiful soft green of the willow, and a hint of what could be a rhododendron in the mid right ...

A wonderfully soft misty morning by the looks of things :)))

I am so glad you like this image, Tonia - I loved the Willow just leafing out - thank you! Greetings from the rainy Oregon Coast (O:

And it sounds like Nick enjoys it as well, dear Amelia! Probably listens to music at the same time! We have a lot of Rhodies and Azaleas - they thrive here. The Rhodies won't bloom until late April/early May I think, but the early azaleas are becoming very showy now - warm hugs (O:

Thanks very much, dear Pom' for enjoying and getting some peace and harmony from this image! I certainly enjoyed being there and seeing it as well. The Willamette is a mighty river which cuts right through the largest city in state of Oregon. Hope you had a lovely Easter! Warm hugs, dear friend (O:

is this somewhere near the latourel waterfall?? gr. roeli

Suzi in Oregon on July 22, 2011

This is on the Willamette River, south of downtown Portland, in the Milwaukie District. I would love to see the Latourell Waterfall, which is in the Columbia River Gorge to the north of Portland, not too far away.Thank you for your visit, Roeli (O:
