Stop and smell the roses (love my cliches today)
Founded in 1917, Portland’s International Rose Test Garden is the oldest
official, continuously operated public rose test garden in the United States. In
the beginning, even though World War I was raging in Europe, hybridists sent
roses from around the world to Portland’s garden for testing and to keep the new
hybrids safe from being destroyed by the bombing in Europe.
So, that being said, we packed a picnic and headed off to smell the roses!
