Tulips emerging

There was a sunbreak recently (a very Seattle thing) and I went outside to work in the garden. The bulbs are starting! Behind the tulip sprouts are bluebells starting up.

Ribbon crowns

Not sure the real name of these headpieces for little girls playing dress up, but I know if I was five I sure would want one! Later: They are called Fairy Crowns.

Tumbling Tauruses

At the Seattle Art Museum recently I stopped to take a photo of a favorite exhibit: “Inopportune: Stage One,” also known as Tumbling Tauruses. I always like viewing this explosive-looking sculpture from the side, for some reason. Now I read it’s coming down soon. Go see them before they are gone!

Amaryllis stamens

I think the white part is the anther. See the post a couple down from here to view this flower.

Amaryllis indoors

I’ve had good luck with getting some red amaryllis to rebloom. I treat them like houseplants and give them summers outside on the sunny patio. The geraniums behind it do well that way, too.

Hellebores in the rain

A mini garden tour yesterday at a friend’s garden in Kent, WA, taking advantage of no rain falling. She has so many beautiful hellebores.

Streetlight sunset

I don’t know why I like this one so much; from a June sky.

Streetlights come on as the night draws nigh, with pink clouds
