Jade vine

Blooming at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, Strongylodon macrobotrys, or jade vine. The spent flowers fall still looking perfect, but unreal. Below the three fallen flowers is the plant as it grows. Isn’t that color like nothing you’ve ever seen? So graceful. LATER NOTE: This plant is blooming for the first time in 20 years!

Orange tulips

The NW Flower & Garden Show starts next week in Seattle. Even though the theatrical lighting can be very challenging for floral photography, there are still so many flower photo opportunities.

Snow on cedar tree

We have a huge cedar tree in out backyard. Here it is in the heavy, wet snow that fell, before it all started to melt. Bonus image below: our front yard. You can see that there is even snow accumulated on the power lines, but it was already starting to fall off.

Heavy snow decorated this 300-year old cedar tree

Snow briefly covered everything, even the power lines

Amaryllis bud

Sometimes the bud is almost more thrilling than the flower. The sense of possibilities!
