{portland} washington’s roses

September 1, 2015

During our Washington Park adventure, we visited Hoyt Arboretum, the Sacajawea statue, and the Oregon Holocaust Memorial then rode the free shuttle over to see the International Rose Test Garden. Portland has had a long-standing love affair with roses so it makes sense that it has an absolutely enormous rose test garden where you could walk for hours and hours just taking in a ridiculously large number of rose varieties. I mean, growing up you only think about roses being red. Then you realize there are a few more colors like yellow, white, and orange. But the fact that there are hundreds perhaps thousands of varieties in all different colors, patterns, and sizes is amazing. Take a look … just remember these few photos do these amazing buds no justice!
