Hugh’s Water Gardens

I love Hugh’s Water Gardens.  It’s a retail nursery in Tualatin that specializes in water gardens, ponds, fountains and that sort of thing.  It is where you’d go to buy a water lily or a fish for your pond.  But the place also feels like a free botanical garden, with lots of displays and interesting plants.  It’s a wonderful place to go for inspiration and strolling through the grounds will convince you to add a water feature to your garden as soon as possible.
