Rhododendrons and Ski Hills
Portland is a BEAUTIFUL city - it is clean and the people are friendly! I would definitely recommend it as a great place to visit! The city is also known for it's abundance of Rhodies (rhododendrons). Here are Nellie and Marilee in front of the Conference Center with some beautiful examples of these flowering bushes in the background.
On my first walk around on Friday morning I found Angie West in the QuiltSource booth. QuiltSource is one of our Canadian distributors and last year they had a replica of a dock complete with Adirondack chairs in their booth - this year they had a ski hill. So of course I couldn't miss this photo op!
