Last Sunday afternoon I sat just under one of these trees
sipping tea with friends.
It was Rose Festival time in Portland and there were many people
out enjoying this gorgeous day in the sun with roses.
There was a wedding nearby.
I just had to take a pause in sharing of the southwest to share
the beauty of the roses in Portland.
Some even enjoyed putting their toes in the fountain to cool.
The rain did return, but still their are roses in the garden.
This last picture is a rose from my garden in the rain this week.
May you have time to stop and smell the roses this weekend.
Happy weekend, dear friends!
I will return to more sharing of Santa Fe
next week. I didn't realize just how much
I enjoyed it there until I started looking back
at my pictures.
