Flowers in Portland's Rose Gardens

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

A flower, not a rose obviously, in Portland’s Rose Gardens. I was a little early for the roses to be in bloom. There were a couple but they’ll really only start coming out in another month or so when Portland holds its Rose Festival.
