Two bouquets

Another rose photo of the flowers I had to pick before the big rains here in Seattle. A lot of rain ruins roses.

Cut your roses before a big rain

I have over a dozen rose bushes out front, and I love to look out at them, preferring to leave them where others can also enjoy them. But a big rain is predicted (2-3″ in a couple of days), and I know that it will just beat up and ruin all the opened ones, so what could I do? I had to pick them.

Cactus at the Conservatory

Just a year ago, took a quick tour of the Cactus House at Volunteer Park Conservatory, in Seattle. I hope they can open again soon. We all miss it so much. Bonus image below!

Pretty little hen-and-chick succulents (not cactus!)

Bonus image:

Stunning accordian-pleated cactus (also a succulent!). When they have more water, they expand.

Afternoon light

Just a few days ago, sweet sunshine in the afternoon on my patio.

Bamboo and Japanese anemones beckon along the path to the back yard

Hardy fuchsias, just watered

Trying to get my garden well watered ahead of a big heat wave coming up. These small flowered hardy fuchsias bloom so well in the late summer garden.

Hardy fuchsias actually like quite a bit of sun, unlike the other, tender kinds

Yellow roses

My ‘Julia Child’ rose is still blooming its heart out.

Fuzzy peaches

I’m a big fan of planting fruit trees. Even if you’re renting. Ever since I wound up living in one rented home with a huge yard for over ten years, and realized I could have had a whole orchard back there, I’ve planted fruit trees. They do take a long time, but time passes, right? This curl-free peach tree (‘Frost’) is about 4 or 5 years old. There are only a couple of dozen peaches, if that. But they are such heaven!

Fuzzy home-grown peaches, so perfumed!

Forest scene at Big Creek, WA

This campground photo from several years ago I offer as a way to remember what the woods feels like. Not this year for us, but maybe next year.

Box of peaches

Our local Trader Joe’s has had magnificent peaches this year. I noticed that they are even MORE beautiful than the illustration on the packaging, which is saying something! Hope you are enjoying your summer fruit in this unusual, to say the least, year.

Heavenly yellow peaches, the best part of summer

Garden stringbeans

Stringbeans were my mom’s favorite vegetable. Ever grow something because it reminds you of someone?

Backyard flowers

I know this is similar to a recent post, but I love this photo, too! We had a few days of sun in Seattle, and with a lot of cloudy and cool weather this year, the sunshine is so glorious. My flowers think so, too.
