A recent visit to Portland, Oregon allowed us to go to Washington Park, situated in the hills above the city.According to Wikipedia, Washington Park is a public urban park that includes a zoo, forestry museum, arboretum, children's museum, rose test garden, Japanese garden, amphitheatre, memorials, archery range, tennis courts, soccer field, picnic areas, playgrounds, public art and many acres of wild forest with miles of trails. It covers more than 410 acres on mostly steep, wooded hillsides. It is wonderful location to view the majestic Mt. Hood across the city to the east.
In the rose garden and amphitheatre, only the helleborus (Lenten Roses) were blooming. We were just days away from spring flowering.
