Creativity Date - Portland's Rose Garden

June 01, 2015 Megan Eckman

If you've ever read, 'The Artist's Way,' you know the importance of taking artist dates with yourself to get your creativity flowing. My partner and I have been feeling a bit blocked lately so we've decided to start taking more artist dates. Each week I'll be sharing pictures from our date. Hopefully, it inspires you to get out and have your own little creativity day to get the juices flowing.

For our first artist date we set off to see Portland's Rose Garden in full bloom. We missed it last year and there was no way I was going to miss it again. It's a huge test garden with miniature roses, roses in every color, and the intoxicating smell of flowers. You get the added advantage of making fun of people posing like fools while smelling flowers and all the ladies walking round taking hundreds of photos of every single rose they see.

We had lots of fun walking around the flowers and discussing which type we'd like to have in front of our future home. We had to agree to disagree though on the miniature ones.
