Rose Festival time has begun and the roses are in full bloom.
Take yourself to the Rose Garden's in Washington Park for the
sweet scent and just plain beauty there.
There is also an amphitheater which has terrific shows later in the summer.
No matter what time of the year the view of the city is worth the adventure.
You can find the gardens just up the hill going west from downtown.
Take W. Burnside up the hill and watch for the sign to turn left.
For those of you visiting from out of town, a quick tip.
Burnside divides the city North and South, then
the Willamette River divides it East and West.
