Playing Tourist in Seattle: Woodland Park Rose Garden

Rose after rain shower

Woodland Park Rose Garden

June is the month of roses, so I made a special effort to visit the Woodland Park Rose Garden between rain showers.  I thought if I waited for a sunny day, I might miss the entire rose season.  Seattle has set a new weather record.  We have never before gone this far into the year without hitting 75 degrees.  Looks like we won’t be hitting that mark any time soon!

The roses covered in raindrops were lovely.
