If you've read this blog for any length of time you know McMenamins brew pubs have interesting gardens, this one was very small, but had some nice plants. Contorted filbert and phormium make an interesting combination.
I have no idea what this is, but it made a nice ground cover.
I can't think of what this might be besides a daphniphyllum, but it's just different enough from my plants to give me pause.
There were several, all small, growing in barrels.
Another close up.
Also in the barrels, Eryngium venustum
It was mid afternoon, and chilly, still I was surprised there was nobody taking advantage of their outdoor seating.
I discovered even more in back, also empty with the exception of a lone table that I didn't photograph.
Walking back to check out a carving I saw while looking for the McMenamins, I passed this street-side sculpture.
And here's the carving...
There was a lot going on!
Even a bench, although I think I would be a little nervous to sit there. I mean they notch trees kind of like that before they fall...
Finally, am I the only one who thinks the bear looks like it wants to play, whereas the fish knows things are NOT looking good for him?
