Lavender flower macro

I need some pretty flowers to look at. Lots of misery in the world lately.

Cherry tomato harvest

Finally the warm days have made the tomato thing happen in the garden. Little, but so sweet!

Smoky moon

Recent wildfires have made our Seattle sky so smoky. The moon is almost full, and so red (even redder than this photo), high in the sky.

Hoya carnosa flowers

This houseplant has flowered for me before, but this time there are TWO flowers. It must be happy.

Double Delight spray of roses

‘Double Delight’ rose has always been one of my top fave rosebushes. I think this is the third or fourth one that I’ve owned.

Eclipse crescents

Here is the pattern of pinhole crescents projected on my house at the peak of this morning’s eclipse, courtesy of our large cedar tree. Where I live the sun was about 92% covered by the moon.

Tiny spaces between leaves and branches of a tree make a giant multi-pinhole camera for today’s eclipse

Fuzzy peach

Our very young peach tree gave us eight peaches! When’s the last time you saw peaches with fuzz on them? Commercial growers breed that out of them for market purposes, but the store ones sure don’t smell and taste like these.

Home grown peaches, from my Seattle garden

Red and pink rose garden

My roses in the front yard are loving this warm, dry weather, even though the sky is so hazy with smoke from the Canada wildfires.

Julia Child rose

My new buttery yellow ‘Julia Child’ rose is so happy where I planted her. New growth, buds, everything.

Sundowner rose

The roses in my front yard rosebed are looking phenomenal. I think they like the hazy (smoky!) sunshine we have had for the past few days. The lack of rain is making them that much more fragrant.

String beans, three colors

I love string beans. They were my mom’s favorite vegetable, too. So fun to pick from the garden. Side note: When you cook the purple ones, they turn regular green and taste just like the green ones.

Purple, regular and yellow wax beans begin their summer abundance.
