The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge this week is to pick images that go with five possible words. I chose to use all five.
I am featuring pictures from a late September trip to The Oregon Garden, in Silverton, Oregon. It’s an 80-acre botanical garden that is beautiful to visit during any season.
This mixed border is an “exuberant” mix of colorful flowers of various sizes and textures.
This planting looked “comfortable” with every plant spaced out so you can appreciate the details.
These chrysanthemums are “crowded” together in a quilt of color.
This landscape is “growing” red as fall approaches.
The cactus garden is “tangled” with the spiky leaves of prickly pear.
It can get crowded at The Oregon Garden, so if you don’t want to get tangled in traffic, plan your visit for a comfortable time of day so you can experience this growing attraction with the exuberance it deserves.

Beautiful landscape flowers and plants.
Yes, it’s beautifully landscaped.
These are great choices for the words. 🙂
Thanks, Amy! It was fun trying to find photos to fit the prompts.
Well done – and the summing up sentence a real treat!
Thanks so much! Challenging but fun prompts.
Oh my Siobhan – your closing using all of the words is superb!!! Love how you used a single place to illustrate all of the concepts. Bravo!
Thanks, Tina! It was a challenge to include all those words in one sentence, but I did it. 😊
Excellent word play, with and without photos!
Thanks for noticing that part of my post! 😁
Thanks! Glad you liked it.
