A Rose Is A Rose

      No Comments on A Rose Is A Rose
The end of September marks the beginning of fall here in the Rose City. Today, Fall is definitely in the air here at Portland’s other public rose gardens- Peninsula Park.
Tucked between Humboldt and Piedmont neighborhoods, in NE Portland, this park has served this community for 100 years. It’s also home of Portland’s “other” Rose Garden. Sure, while the Rose Garden in West Portland gets most of the attention with the Mt. Hood views, the nearby zoo, and Pittock Mansion; Peninsula Park is worth a visit. It’s quieter, especially around the reflecting fountain, and much easier to find FREE parking.
Walking through the Rose gardens, I am reminded of a cliche, in which, as a writer, I try to avoid~~~it is what it is.
Sounds like, A Rose is a Rose, only a rose smells prettier.

About Woody

The travel bug is contagious. I caught it in 1985 while traveling with Hali on a three month backpacking trip through Western Europe. Having a passion for geography, local history & culture, and with a journal in my back pocket, I hope to share our experiences through this blog – whether traveling the well worn rail, or off the beaten trail.

We enjoy hearing from you! Leave us a comment here:
