I visited my favorite Seattle florist, Trudy’s Floral Design, this afternoon. I love that Trudy grows some of her flowers in her own garden. It was so great to see beautiful and unusual flowers close up again. Since the full-year project of visiting the Volunteer Park Conservatory each month last year to take photos for my book, I have been missing masses of beautiful flowers. I’ll have to do something about that.

NEWS FLASH: I’ll be signing books at Trudy’s Floral Design at her holiday Open House on Thursday, November 10, from 2:30 to 6:30. Please drop by and enjoy her lovely flowers, special decorations, a tree and poinsettias, plus goodies!

Take a look at Color Carnival, Macro Monday, Macro Friday, SOOC Sunday (straight out of the camera), Macro Flowers Saturday, Today’s Flowers, and Weekend Flowers. And if you’ve arrived via a link, be sure to click on Sara’s Fave Photos to see the entire blog.
