Pt. Defiance Rose Garden

When I looked at the calendar yesterday, I suddenly realized it’s already the middle of July and I hadn’t seen a single rose at the Pt Defiance Rose Garden yet. So, between rain showers, I made a quick trip down there.

Wow, the garden was in full bloom, with nearly all the roses in bloom now. I almost imagined that they were even more beautiful because of the raindrops lingering on them:

Although some of the roses looked like they’d been battered by recent rain, there were enough just unfolding

to ensure they will continue to delight visitors for weeks to come.

If you looked hard enough, you could even find whole bouquets of roses in prime condition.

The roses deserve to be seen in their full beauty, but I have a few pictures of other flowers I liked that I’ll publish in the next day or two.

  1. Loren, sorry for the long absence, I’ve been out of the blog world off and on for the past couple of months but am catching up now. As always I love seeing your beautiful pictures!

    • I know that feeling, I’m having a hard time posting regularly in the summer, so I empathize with you.

      Glad to have you drop by again, though.

  2. Rather than go through registering with an organisation, can I put my poems and essays on your site. It is my first attempt but I am inspired to do it now. Please let me know through your site soon. Thank you very much.

    • I’m sorry but as an ex-teacher I wouldn’t want to start letting people post their material to my site, though I have let some people post short poems in the comments if they are related to the post itself.

      If you start your own site and link to mine I generally link to your site to promote your material.

What do you think?
