Check out my new book, Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory. And welcome to Sara's Fave Photos Blog at Love That Image. My goal is to take a photo that is as compelling and beautiful as in real life, with no or minimal Photoshop work. You may copy a photo but link to lovethatimage.com. Thank you for your thoughtful comments, and thanks for visiting.

Dahlia macro

Volunteer Park in Seattle has a dahlia garden, very well maintained by the local Dahlia Society. The other day the sun was shining, and I was happy to see this.

Orchids at the Conservatory

Today was the last day that Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory was open to visitors so that the long-awaited restoration project can be completed. Look for the grand re-opening in early December.

A beautiful last day for the orchids at the Conservatory, until re-opening in December, a mere two months or so away.

Rose bouquet

They predicted rain, quite a bit, so I went out and cut the fully open roses. What a fine idea I had.

Fern fronds

This is some kind of black-stemmed maidenhair fern, seen in the woods in the Olympic Peninsula. I haven’t seen this kind of radial pattern before.
