Pt. Defiance Rose Garden

The last time I was at the Point Defiance Rose Garden a few weeks ago, there was virtually no flowers to be seen. What a difference yesterday. If you live near Tacoma and like Roses, you owe it to yourself to get here soon, as this looks like the peak of the season for roses . Almost every variety had some flowers in full bloom,

Orange Rose

but it was clear that there were a number of ladies-in-waiting when these beauties started to fade. Luckily the Rose Garden has a long season.

But, judging from the Irises I observed, you’d better get there soon if you want to see beauties like this

White Iris

as the iris seem to be disappearing quickly.
