All Shades of Green—-A Plant Perspective

Portland Rose Garden

5 Comments

I captured this short 8 second video at the Portland, Oregon Rose garden this month.  It’s so fleeting, but it captures the sweetness of summer and the beauty of this floriferous climbing rose, Super Dorothy Perkins.  I don’t know who the running girl is, but who wouldn’t want to skip carefree through this place?  I love the way this rose hangs down, like wisteria or a golden chain tree. Another new favorite of mine from this trip is All American Magic, pictured below.  The color change is incredible…pink, yellow and red…it does seem like magic.  If you are ever in the area, I wholeheartedly recommend visiting this beautiful rose garden.  It’s the good life.
