Rose City (Original Hand-pulled Linocut)

The official, and also most common, nickname for Portland is The City of Roses or Rose City.

In 1889, the Portland Rose Society was founded, and promoted the planting of 20 miles of Portland's streets with roses in advance of the 1905 Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition. The nickname grew in popularity after the exposition.

My favorite rose garden is located in the historic neighborhood of Ladd's Addition. The most notable garden is the International Rose Test Garden in Washington Park. There are over 650 varieties blooming in this garden between April and October. The stunning park overlooks the city with Mt Hood in the backdrop.
