I was on the west coast for work last week. One evening I had some time to fill so I stopped in the International Rose Test Garden in Portland.
Oh my goodness! It is a fairyland of flowers! There are tens of thousands of plants of every kind of rose imaginable.
After being stuck in a stuffy conference room all day it was a great way to refresh and rejuvenate. I wish I could have bottled up the scent, so sweet and pretty.
