portland's international rose test garden

Back in 1917, inspired by Georgiana Burton Pittock and 20 miles of rose-bordered streets, Jesse A. Curry (a former Rose Society president) convinced city fathers to inaugurate a rose test garden.  What is now the oldest official, continuously operated public rose test garden in the United States was born.  

June in our dear City of Roses is this garden's month of glory...

 We go mostly for the smelling.
But its a great sensory experience all around.


  1. Your pictures are so wonderful. Your little girl has the softest looking hair, I know that sounds funny but your photos contain great texture. The flowers are amazing too, so clear and alive. Thank you for sharing. That garden looks like a magical place.

    1. Wow! Thank you. I always feel like a pretty unskilled photographer and my daughter wouldn't even let me brush her hair that day. You are most kind :)
