Portland: Rose City

Last week I went on vacation to Oregon. First Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, then Portland for fun. I have never been to Portland before but it seemed like the kind of place I would like.

Baby Boomer
There's no "Last Week on Pinterest" this week since I pretty much didn't pin anything, but I do have a bunch of photos from our trip to the International Rose Test Garden to share.

Lavender Lace
I've never seen so many different roses in one place! Each variety has a little placard with the name of the type of rose (captioned on the photos).

Si Micro Mini
I loved all the mini roses. And there were one or two types of micro mini roses that were just adorable.

Sweet Caroline
In addition to the Rose Garden, I also visited some food trucks, Powell's City of Books, a bunch of yarn stores, and the Japanese Garden (pictures to come later).

Black Jade
I loved how everything in Portland was so close and walk-able and the diverse neighborhoods both downtown and in greater Portland were really fun to explore. All in all, a pretty fun trip and I would definitely go back.

Distant Drums
P.S. I think these Distant Drum roses were my favorite of the regular roses. I love their colors!
