A rose is born

Portland is known as the "City of Roses" forget all that Pasadena crap you hear, the Willamette valley produces some of the finest roses in the world. Roses will bloom in Portland just about any month of the year I am sure I have a slide somewhere with a beautiful rose covered in a December snowfall, of course there are thousands of varieties and many are patented, thing is most roses are grafted on to root stock as these modern fancy roses have no immune system, cannot tolerate weather extremes and basically need the advantages it's original ancestors.

I really liked the photos, but what I really liked was the thought you put into the story of each one.
Very journal like.

Thank you. Every Picture tells a story. I don't have a photoblog template that works for me the way I want it to, so I'm just using the MoveableType Category to do the project. It would be nice to thumbnail everything and have a single page with links to a full sized pics and journal entries. As I learn more I hope to get it right.
