My Month, My Flower

Do you think it is a coincidence that my birthday is in June and my favorite flower is the rose? I like simple daisies too but nothing to me is prettier than a rose, any type, any color.

A few years ago my birthday, roses and a trip to Portland all pleasantly came together when Jim and I got to visit Portland, Oregon during the rose festival. I always fall in love with cities with rivers and Portland certainly fits that. Two other trips and places I really enjoyed were Missoula, Montana and Nashville, Tennessee.

Enough of this let me show you some of the roses from the gardens of Portland. The photographer here was my husband. Although we did many things during our visit the rainy afternoon at the rose gardens was one of my favorite parts of the trip.



Beautiful, aren't they?

  1. YES! I especially like the last one with raindrops. I have been to the Portland Rose Garden. It is quite amazing.

  2. Roses are so beautiful! Those are wonderful photos! I live about an hour and a half from Portland and haven't to the Rose Festival yet. I do enjoy the (small) rose garden in one of our local parks and we have a river through our town too!
