Sidney said...

has to be Victoria BC!

Amber said...

It has to be Portland right?! We went to the rose garden and took pictures right on those stairs :-) We were there in September though so there weren't as many roses...your pics are beautiful! Fun trip!!

Thimbleanna said...

I can't guess, but it looks fabulous!

Suzan said...

Victoria - Buchart Gardens or the gardens at the Empress Hotel?

My guess is in Portland at the Rose Festival. (and I didn't read anyone else's comments before making this guess :)) where ever it looks very enjoyable!

Terriaw said...

Looks like a wonderful weekend! That picnic, those gigantic roses, and beautiful gardens - heavenly!

Dorrie said...

With all the foliage in the background, I'd have to say Victoria BC. Truly beautiful and the picnic looks amazing!

Abby said...

Portland! We loved visiting the rose gardens and the Japanese gardens when we visited a few years ago!

I was thinking Victoria, but the Portland voters have me second guessing. Do tell!

ohthatashley said...

okay, I just reaized that Victoria is an island and it's doubtful that you took a train to an island. Duhhh.

Sarah said...

Portland...the Benson Hotel? Do they still have a fantastic Sunday brunch?

Were you in my neck of the woods while I was sorta in your neck of the woods? LOL ooxx`jod

Janet said...

Where ever it is it looks idyllic. I wish I were there.

If you were over on the west coast I haven't been in some years so I wouldn't remember what it looked like. It looks beautiful wherever you were. Looks like you you had a fantastic weekend! Good for you!!!!

Pam said...

Somewhere very lovely!! Although I know it wasn't Victoria because Victoria does not have Amtrack or that Hotel with an American flag hanging on it. So my guess would be Portland and since I have only been to Portland in January I can see I might need to go there in June. Looks like you had a great time.

Is it weird that I can't stop thinking that the pink and white rose looks just like this Amy Butler fabric?

LOVE that meal, it's actually my favorite meal (minus pate and plus cheese).

My home town - Portland - the Rose Gardens, specifically!

Looks like Portland OR to me...the tail end of the Rose Festival, and that last photo looks like a bit of the Pride Parade, perhaps? I love taking the train from Seattle to Portland (although haven't done it in years).

Amy - Park City Girl said...

Looks like Portland to me! My other guess was Victoria, until I saw the flags :)

Hope you had a blast!

Jackie said...

Look at the size of those roses! Would love to go there and see it all in person. Wonderful photos, thanks for sharing.

Calico Road said...

I have no idea where you were, but your pictures are beautiful!!! Sure looked like fun, but what is that *stuff* in your picnic? Pate?
