chinese garden

the Portland Chinese Garden is a little slice of heaven in the middle of downtown. my parents and i celebrated mother's day/my mum's birthday there on saturday. it's so incredibly peaceful and they have a delightful tea house (see photos 4 through 9) inside of the garden as well as an art gallery and various relaxing spots for you to sit and just soak up the atmosphere.

ps- i know i've been posting a lot of my photos lately, i hope you guys don't mind!

My photo
Portland, OR, United States
hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
