Never Promised You a Rose Garden

We spent much of the afternoon in Portland's rose test garden. There are thousands of roses here in dozens of varieties. The sheer diversity of flowers attests to the complexity and majesty of the natural world, even though many breeds were "unnaturally" selected. Claire and I lingered in the perfumed breezes and imagined spending the day napping there.
