Tomato harvest with Sungolds

This must be a good ten pounds of tomatoes. They are pulling over the trellis with their abundance. Time for some mozzarella and basil for the best caprese salad. Bonus macro shot below!

Wave clouds at Galaxy golf course

Hubby was golfing on our little Whidbey Island vacation and saw these wave clouds! And it was so scenic, as well!

If I were a cat

Winter sun goes deep into the room in Seattle on the last day of the year. So welcome! If I were a cat I know I’d be napping here.

Keep smilin’!

The dark weather in Seattle does kind of get to me at this time of year. But we must keep smiling!

Corpse flower

I finally got to see a Corpse Flower in bloom! It was kind of under the radar at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory. They hadn’t publicized it for fear of crowds in this covid era. They bloom very rarely. This plant is twenty years old and this is its first bloom, so it is kind of a baby, which is why the whole thing is only about three feet tall. Mature flowers can be eight feet! The bloom was at its maximum this morning, and I saw it at around 2pm. I was surprised that the odor was completely done! So it was not stinky at all, a bit of a disappointment, but it was more beautiful than I expected. The outer part was an incredible swirl of loveliness. Here is a little documentary about them with David Attenborough.

Teensy cactus babies

I have a south window and this time of year in Seattle I start to get direct sun. Two small baby cactus plants went and had babies of their own!

Venus fly trap got a spider

I’m brand new to the world of carnivorous plants. Someone gave me this tiny Venus fly trap (VFT) plant and I’m learning. It’s just a baby; the whole pot is only two inches wide. I put it outside for sun and bugs and was so surprised that it captured a big spider! I thought a mosquito or fruit fly was more its size.

Free calendar

In honor of Inauguration Day yesterday and the big change it represents for the USA, I created a 2021 photo calendar of beautiful bouquets, all taken over the last few years at Seattle’s NW Flower & Garden Festival (formerly the NW Flower & Garden Show). #NWFGS #NWFGF You are welcome to download and share this Bouquets 2021 Calendar.

If you print it out, I suggest at perhaps at 80% size (for even borders), centered on the page, printing on only ONE side of the page—a little craft project for you. Enjoy!

In the comments, I’d love to know your favorite photo page.

Shadows on the wall

The mysterious thing about these early morning shadows is that the tree branches they show are probably 75 feet away. It’s amazing that the details of the cedar needles are so clear. I am thinking that there must be a pinhole camera effect.
