Stop & Smell the Roses

 After living in Portland for over two years, we still had not been to the International Rose Test Garden.  The gardens are practically in our backyard and we had always planned to visit...two years later and we still hadn't.  Finally on a warm and sunny Sunday, we decided it was time to stop and smell the roses.  Boy, were there a lot!
Wandering amongst the vast variety of roses, taking in the sweet aromas 
and reading the fun names of each flower was the perfect sunny day activity.
