"The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem
For that sweet odour which doth in it live."

some gorgeous flowers from Portland's Rose Garden!
August is obviously an AWESOME time to visit as almost every variety was cloaked in blooms. I was completely overwhelmed with the experience!
After tucking my nose into dozens of roses, I can now say with confidence that roses have decidedly different "odours," as the Bard refers to their scent. A two-toned red and pink variety called "Rock and Roll" smelled sweet, punchy, and spicy while a full-formed soft mauve rose gave off a light, but consistent aroma that smelled like Parisian memories.
What a lush and unexpected experience!
What fun place will you go explore?
