Before our trip to the Pacific Northwest, I had NO idea Portland was considered the Rose City.
However, after a trip to the Rose Gardens, it was apparent that the climate of this area was perfect for growing roses.
This was the little building that greeted us as we entered...ok, it was the restrooms, but they were the prettiest little restrooms you've ever seen!
The morning dew was still on a few special roses.
There were so many different varieties...
And, some of my favorites...climbing roses.
Apparently there is a festival, the past queens' names were hand written!
As we continued our stroll, there was a special surprise.
It was a very calm and tranquil place.
Another special memory of our trip.
