Pink stripes + black skinnies

These pics are a few weeks old, taken when my husband and I visited the Portland Japanese Garden, and the adjacent Rose Garden, during Spring Break. We were a bit too late for the cherry trees, which bloomed very early this year, but it was a lovely spring morning, fresh with a bit of a chill in the air. I wore my pink-striped tee and pattern-mixed a bit with my black-and-white polka-dotted scarf. The pink stripes popped against my black skinnies, tall black boots, and black felt cap.

We first went to the Japanese Garden during the early morning members’ hour, and it was misting a little off and on. Sam took some quick pics while he was under an awning, along the stone walkway to the lower koi pond.

The International Rose Test Garden is down a series of stone steps down from the Japanese Garden, so we took a few photos by one of the brick buildings surrounding the rose gardens.

It was very interesting to see the layout of the rose garden from above, before the roses have started budding. The pic below captures just one part of the rose gardens — it’s about three levels down as well as several plots wide, not counting the large outdoor amphitheater.
