Flower border

Always so challenging to get the flower border to bloom in concert, right? Even though the light is overcast, the flowers are cooperating, sort of.

Pink lavender

Not everyone knows that the lavender plant comes in several colors, and one is pink!

Red raspberries just picked

Our berry bushes are producing! Thankfully neither the squirrels or the birds seem that interested.

Bees love weigela

I learned that weigela (why-GHEEL-a) is related to honeysuckle. No wonder its sweet smell attracts bees!

In praise of mothering

You don’t have to be a mother to mother someone. Extra warmth and kindness makes anyone feel loved.

Pink dogwood

This year the spring flowers seem even more spectacular than usual. Seattle does spring very well indeed.

Bleeding hearts

For a brief time it was sunny out. The garden is in bloom.

I heart bleeding hearts! Pink and white spring flowers in my yard.

Amaryllis with seeds

My windowsill Minerva amaryllis bloomed earlier. Now a second bloom is happening, and the first bloom actually set seed! Below is a view of the dark brown seed and a second, unripe pod behind it.

Snow scene at night

My backyard view on Friday night, halfway through the big snow in Seattle. By morning, there was nine inches in my driveway. Now it’s Sunday, and more is falling!
