A rose colored world
I had to post this picture to help celebrate Portland's Rose Festival. I made a trip up to the International Rose Test Gardens this past Tuesday on my day off to find this shot. The flowers are really beginning to bloom and the smells are definitely heady, as long as you don't catch the aroma of fertilizer as well. ;-) Still the roses really need about another week or so to really hit peak. Nonetheless, it is a wonderful spot to while away a couple of hours or even a whole day. This was one of my favorites, though I failed to note its name, I get too caught up in the sights and smells to read much of the names.
