The Portland Rose Festival is sneaking up on us rather quickly but the time for viewing roses is early this year. Roses in all gardens are coming into bloom now because of our early warm weather this spring. If you haven’t been there, I highly recommend a visit to the Peninsula Park Sunken Rose Garden in North Portland. This garden was built in 1913 and has thousands of roses in just one acre. The garden is located just east of I-5 off the Rosa Parks exit on North Albina and North Ainsworth. The next three weeks should be spectacular.
