Portland, city of roses

June 18, 2011 2 comments

Portland is known as “Rose City”, and they have a very beautiful rose garden open to the public.  We had a rare sunny day so Romola and I went for a visit.

The spring weather has been very bad, and rose growth is behind schedule.  Also, there is some damage to the more delicate petals.  Nevertheless, there were enough roses for me to fully utilize my new digital camera.  I managed to select some, shown in the album below.

Note also the image which shows some of downtown and Mt. Hood in the background.  Beautiful place, Portland.
