This month we visited the International Rose Test Garden in Portland, Oregon. It was beautiful. Course, I love roses, so I am a little biased but it was amazing. I saw so many different colors and so many shapes and sizes. It was incredible.
The beds were everywhere- rows and rows of blooms.
There were pockets of other flowers around as well- the bees were going to town on these- had to get a close up. I left my camera at the hotel as we were planning on visiting here the following day and all I had was my iPhone - I thought the photos came out ok considering.
Look at the color!!!
(see- iPhone.... not great color but you still see all the bloms!!)
I was really impressed- we really enjoyed the visit and strolling around in the gardens.
This was the entrance- I love the way they incorporated the Lebanon Cedars. They look like Dr. Seuss trees to me hahah Love em!!!
Every color imaginable.
I love the rose hedges.
And last but not least- the garden plaque. Love this- my mother has this in her garden; my grandmother was an avid gardner and pout this plaque in the garden and it has been there ever since. The saying has always had a special place in my heart.
