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.

Seattle skyline

Here’s a view of Seattle you won’t see for very much longer, taken November 2016. Note the Great Wheel, the construction cranes, the Space Needle, and the Viaduct roadway, soon to be torn down.

Rain coming

Finally the Seattle area got some rain last week. Here’s the sky in back of my house right before it got here.

Bougainvillea indoors

I have a standard bougainvillea plant (a little tree) that lives on my patio in the summer and indoors with the houseplants when it gets cold. It loves the warm indoors temps, the big sunny south-facing window, and the extra plant food. Flowers!

Houseplants in the living room

Like the kitchen shadows post below, I love bringing in the patio plants when the Seattle weather turns cold. On a sunny afternoon the feel in the room is glorious.

A south-facing window in Seattle is kind to houseplants in the winter time.

Sun shadows in the kitchen

I love a south-facing window as the sun gets lower in the sky. The plants love it, too!

November sunshine streams into my kitchen on a recent sunny day, lighting up the purple oxalis and other plants

Glowing cape

At last week’s last Lusio light art fundraiser at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, this person went all out with their glowy LED cape, perfect for the occasion.

Teensy orchids

I know I’ve been using such technical plant names, but I can never remember the real names. Anyway, this stalk that looks like fountain grass is really little bitty orchids! So saith the Volunteer Park Conservatory, and they should know.
