while alex, bailey, and ian were in town, we went to the rose test gardens of portland. it was so beautiful, and the smells were out of this world! i have never been the biggest fan of roses, but this made me have a completely different view of them and how they are produced. everywhere you turned there was a new smell hitting your nose, it was quite the experience.
there was a really sweet amphitheater that reminded me of machu picchu.
we were in heaven smelling all of the roses.
i think the group favorite was the "julia child"...
pretty perfect name for the best smelling rose, if you ask us!
here it is in all of its glory:
we also went to the pittock mansion right up the road,
talk about being loaded and having a sweet property.
