In summer 2021, life felt like it was resembling some type of normalcy again. Vaccinations for COVID-19 were available and the weather made it possible for people to spend more time outside. I took advantage of this time to take a trip to the pacific northwest.
While I had weeks filled with various adventures, one thing that stood out was a day trip to the International Rose Test Garden in Portland, Oregon.
The City of Portland website claims that more than 10,000 rose bushes bloom every year, with roughly 610 rose varieties.
