On a nice, somewhat sunny Saturday, we went to the Portland International Rose Test Garden.

It is the oldest public garden of its kind in the United States. There are over 7,000 rose plants and about 550 varieties.


Many people were enjoying the beautiful roses in bloom.

The following photos are just a sample of the offering and, of course, can never capture the amazing scents and colors of the garden.
