I've been in Portland Oregon for the past few days at the 2014 Garden Bloggers Fling. Three days of touring amazing gardens and a few outstanding nurseries, and my head is almost as full as my camera.

It's going to take a bit of time to work through these photos and put together posts, so I thought I'd start you off with a few photo collages, one from each day of the trip. Although you won't get to see many of these for a while, they should give you a nice taste of what's to come...


..but without giving away too much. I want you to "discover" some of the secrets of these gardens in the same way I did this past weekend.

I chose all of these photos very quickly, almost randomly, and none of them have been processed in any way (cropping, color correction, etc.) but I really like they way they all work together. It's really quite beautiful!

I also limited myself to only 25 images for each collage, when there are actually over 200 from each day. So much to share!

You are going to love some of the things that I saw on this trip!

And if you're a fellow Flinger, I'm hoping I captured something that you may have missed yourself -- I know I'm looking forward to seeing what others saw that I missed!

Non garden related question - how do you make the photo collages?

Can't wait to see and read more!

We're still here Alan but will be home soon. Great to meet you and the fling was a blast!

The collages are a great idea. Can't wait to look at them on my computer monitor. I'm at the Portland airport waiting for my flight home. Awesome fling!

I love the preview collages and can tell I'm really going to enjoy seeing these gardens through your eyes. So glad you made it out to Portland and we got to meet in "real life"...

Lisa: I use Picasa for my photo "librarian" and basic editing, and it has a "collage" feature. Just select the photos I want and click a button and choose a style. Super easy (or I probably wouldn't do it).

Collages make almost any set of images look better. :)

Lovely collage, and what a tantalizing preview!
