Jupiter’s beard in the garden

Jupiter’s beard (Centranthus ruber or red valerian), is very tough. I first saw this tall red flower growing out of a sheer rock face in N. California at the Waldo Grade. I figured, that’s one tough plant, so it’s either easy or invasive to grow. So far, nicely well behaved in my Seattle garden.

Rose garden

The front roses getting ready for their first bloom. This year the little bed with the foxgloves, hardy fuchsia, and armeria looks good, too.

Grape hyacinths

Also called muscari, these darling little bell-shaped flowers are a favorite early spring flower, even though they have no fragrance. See my pink magnolia in the background, almost blooming? Spring is truly here.

Pretty blue-purple bulbs of grape hyacinth come up every spring

Tawny the horse

From ten years ago, Tawny grazing the horse pasture next door, taken from my yard. A big house and garage are there now, all fenced in. Life is change.

January in California

Here’s a little video clip of a January trip to Sonoma County, CA a few years ago. Scenic barn! Live oak! Birdsong!

And a still from the same scene. I wish you a scenic 2020.

Connectivity

Is there anything more beautiful than a cloudless sunset sky? The softest lavender fading to golden brilliance.

Sundog and wind turbines

Driving home from the middle of the state (WA), we saw a sundog along with the huge wind turbines.

Can you see the faint rainbow in the clouds?

Sky over Puget Sound

At the Cove in Normandy Park WA last evening, the sky was mostly gray but quite beautiful, I thought.
