HILLSBORO, OREGON - APRIL 3, 2014 - Every once in a while a single tulip of a different variety will end up in a row.  They’re easy to spot and they will be taken out so the bulbs are all the same variety.  The VanderZanden Tulip Farm has been selling tulips since 1979.  They started with one acre and now have seven acres that they sell from all out of the small store on the farm.  The tulips are in full bloom now and they should be picking through the end of April.  Photo by Benjamin Brink/The Oregonian

  15. PORTLAND, OREGON - March 24, 2014 - The blossoming 100-year-old weeping cherry means it is springtime at the Portland Japanese Garden. The tree has been nursed back to health over the last few years. In Japanese culture, the seasons are a metaphor for the passage of time. Spring signifies youth, according to communications manager Ingrid Arnett. Signs of growth line every path as cherry blossom petals float to earth and maple leaves unfurl. The garden is open year-round, but the springtime is particularly entrancing.  Photo by Stephanie Yao Long/The Oregonian
