Roses in the Rose City!
Portland is known as the Rose City. The weather conditions are great for growing roses, and they grow everywhere! There's even an amazing rose garden in Washington Park that is definitely worth checking out if you're ever in the area.
Well, we were really excited to find all kinds of different roses growing on our new property! Thank you, previous owners, for planting all kinds of rosy goodness! So far we have some pink ones, gorgeous orange ones, and HUGE red ones that smell really nice. There's also a few miniature white ones in the back just popping out. We cut one of the red ones and brought it indoors so we could enjoy the smell. :)
