Yesterday was rose garden day. As is the custom in Oregon there was light rain off and on, but not enough to spoil our trip, so off we went. As expected our guests were quite impressed with the roses flowers. They have over one hundred tea rose bushes themselves and she was very knowledgeable about roses. She walked a lot more than she would have thought possible. I suppose her level of excitement allowed her to forget about her pain and discomfort. She wrote names in a notebook while he did camera duty. Most of the full blossoms were at least seven inches in diameter. I carried the tape measure to add to the photos proving the sizes. We bought sausage dogs at a stand in the gardens and sat outside to eat them. I thought she might wilt but she mustered the strength to march on to the gift shop.
