‘Julia Child’ rose

Oh the joy, two new rosebushes for an anniversary gift. This beauty is ‘Julia Child,’ named in homage to the queen of butter.

Butter yellow rose, as it should be, named after American icon Julia Child. And sweetly fragrant as well.

Snowfire rose

The roses are getting started very nicely.

Blood red petals with a snow white outside of the petal make Snowfire rose a real standout

Lilacs in the rain

I do love lilacs. They look good even in this wettest year ever in Seattle.

Two apple trees

A couple of days ago, the two columnar apple trees near my patio looked like this, not quite blooming. Wonder what two warm and sunny days will do?

Bluebells and forget-me-nots, a pruned grapevine, and two columnar apple trees almost in bloom. Scallions (green onions) blooming at lower left, and a multi-graft plum tree in the distance.

Magnolias seem to be beautiful in all stages. This one has lost one petal.

Two pink trees

There was a sunbreak. The tree on the left is a Japanese magnolia showing how the hard rain we had knocked a lot of the petals off, and on the right is pink dogwood, getting ready to bloom. In front are three hydrangeas, just sticks still, and a red azalea just starting.

The embodiment of Springtime: pink trees

Tulip and bluebells

Tulips naturalize if conditions are just right. They don’t like any water in the summers. But bluebells bloom anywhere, and just at the same time. Good combo, yes?

Gardenia in the rain

I adore gardenias. They were my mother’s favorite flower.

Raindrops only add to the perfection of this intensely fragrant gardenia blossom.

Lavender in sunshine

These lavender plants were blooming in my garden in mid-June last year. Their scent is heaven to me.
