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.

Double primroses

We had a brief sunbreak yesterday (oh, the thrill of sunshine in Seattle!) and I found that some things were happening in the garden.

Almost spring

Seattle’s weather has been colder and wetter than normal. Here is a plum tree in my back yard, trying so hard to bloom, taken on a rare break in the rain.

Summer garden

It seems like the cold and rainy weather in Seattle will go on forever. But it won’t.

Snow on cedar tree

We have a huge cedar tree in out backyard. Here it is in the heavy, wet snow that fell, before it all started to melt. Bonus image below: our front yard. You can see that there is even snow accumulated on the power lines, but it was already starting to fall off.

Heavy snow decorated this 300-year old cedar tree

Snow briefly covered everything, even the power lines
