Thanks to Portland, More Roses!!!

Beautiful Portland Rose Garden at Washington Park
Portland trip was fruitful! For real, the entire city is a botanical garden. Although during my visit (about a week long) it rained everyday, on the last day of my stay and just when I was about to give up on the idea to visit the Rose Garden, the Sun came out (briefly). So I hopped on the excellent Portland Max Light Train, and 2o mins later, I was in front of the Washington Park. High five to myself :)

Thank you the Portland Rose Garden for helping me enrich my rose garden photo collection!
