Portland Roses


We've been gone for a few days on our semiannual trip to Portland.  This time we got an incredibly beautiful morning of sun and had to head up the hill to the International Rose Test Garden.  It was just amazing to see all those roses in bloom.





This one little snatch of sun made up for the rest of the gray and drizzly weekend.  We did manage to enjoy ourselves by walking the whole of downtown on Saturday, Powell's, the Pearl, Toy Story for some and a class with Jared Flood for me!  My class was a workshop on seamless sweaters and I don't have any knitting to show for it, but I learned some cool tips and feel a lot more confident on starting my own Elizabeth Zimmerman inspired sweater.  Now we're back home on the sunny side of the mountains for what promises to be the first real summer-like weather of the year!
