About 2 weeks ago Adam and I visited the International Rose Test Garden located in Washington Park here in Portland. The garden has over 7,000 rose plants and about 550 varieties. The Rose Garden is one of many great places here in Portland. The admission to the garden is free, all you have to do is pay for parking. It’s a wonderful place to walk around, spend your afternoon reading a book, or planning a picnic. You see a lot of people walking around taking photos and kids playing in the open areas.
