Cleaning House #2

Another photo essay from our fall activities (see below for the first one):

Taking Time to Smell the Roses

One of the places Portland is known for is its International Test Rose Gardens. It's up on a hill overlooking the town and in addition to featuring acres of beautiful flowers, offers great views of the city and Mt. Hood. When we lived in Portland in 2000, I would take my books, cell phone and pager and spend hours in one of the garden areas studying electrophysiology. It sure beat working in a cube!

Over labor day weekend we played tour guide to Dave and Heidi and biked all around the city. The rose garden was one of our stops and we enjoyed playing amateur botanical photographer.
