"Founded in 1917, Portland’s International Rose Test Garden is the oldest official, continuously operated public rose test garden in the United States. In the beginning, even though World War I was raging in Europe, hybridists sent roses from around the world to Portland’s garden for testing and to keep the new hybrids safe from being destroyed by the bombing in Europe."  Here, among these lovely blooms, I spotted this little guy diggin for gold!  Since picking the roses is forbidden, I guess he found a worthy alternate!
