Fancy mum leaves

“Fancy” is not a very technical description, but I’ve never seen chrysanthemum leaves with a white border like this. Pretty showy!

Fancy chrysanthemum

I’ve never seen one like this! Just in time to pique interest for the fabulous Mum Show coming up at the Conservatory in Volunteer Park, Seattle.

Interlaken grapes

Our backyard grape vine is doing pretty well this year. We might get ten bunches! The raccoons decimated the plums but haven’t taken all of these (yet). So sweet and delicious. If you can, plant a grapevine.

Perennial sunflower

A friend gave me a start of this perennial sunflower plant last spring. It flowers in September: YAY!

Rose bouquet

Rain is predicted, so I went out and cut some roses.

I’m posting a second photo of this same bouquet from a different angle. Which do you prefer?

This is in honor of the 25,000th comment received on this blog, on the Cherry Tomatoes post below (thank you, Magical Mystery Teacher!). Every single comment I have ever received here has been kind and positive. What a fine group of people are photo-blog visitors!

Chicks for sale

Was in a new-to-me Wilco/True Value store in Bremerton, WA. I enjoyed the shopping experience very much, plus they had baby chicks. #iamsofluffy
