I did, however, think this rose was worthy of a blog all of its own. I saw it in the Portland Rose Garden at the weekend. I am not sure this would be my choice of rose but it certainly was a show stopper. The name, All American Magic. This is a rose that fades with grace from red and yellow, to pink and cream then white with splashes of pink. Rather reminiscent of a rose seen around my home town, mutabilis.
The other posts will have to wait; the Denver Botanical Garden, the Steamboat Springs Botanical garden, the visit to my cousin's farm Co-op on Vancouver Island and the unusual rock pool garden at Haystack Beach, Oregon. I am thinking I may have plenty of time to blog about these visits in the coming weeks on my return home!
