So, being the Rose Girl that I am...on our walk yesterday I noticed the rental house at the end of the street (which is unoccupied) has all their gorgeous roses in bloom. On our way home I picked a few and now have a little something to remind of Rose Festival week.

green and beautiful! But what most people don't know is; Portland is famous for its Roses. The first two weeks in June the city celebrates the Portland Rose Festival. The Rose Festival is celebrating 102 years and still going strong with fun activities like: dragon races, waterfront carnival, queen coronation, Grand Flora Parade, and of course Rose Competitions.
