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.

Morning shadows from tree branches very far away

Milk glass

In Seattle on a sunny afternoon at this time of year the shadows reach far into the house.

Leaves in water

Autumn leaves floating in a plant saucer. We leave it out as a sort of birdbath for critters. In the spring it attracted a pair of mallard ducks!

Jack-o’-lantern

Okay, a day late. But I love the cheeriness of its smile. May all the spooky times be over with!

Smoky sky

We are grateful that the air in Seattle is not worse. We are not dealing with orange visions of armageddon, just “very unhealthy” levels of air pollution, blowing in from fires not very close by, thank goodness.

Box of peaches

Our local Trader Joe’s has had magnificent peaches this year. I noticed that they are even MORE beautiful than the illustration on the packaging, which is saying something! Hope you are enjoying your summer fruit in this unusual, to say the least, year.

Heavenly yellow peaches, the best part of summer

Solstice houseplant

I have a kokedama houseplant that is my own little Stonehenge. Even though the window faces north, for a only few days at the Solstice, sunshine pours in.

Sundew, drosera capensis

I love my little sundew plant. It’s a carnivorous plant that eats fruit flies and soil gnats. A bog plant, so likes to sit in water in the outer pot, and you must never fertilize as the little bugs is all the food it wants. Can you see a speck or two of bugs it’s feasting on right now? When it gets warmer there will be more fruit flies for it.

Sundew drosera capensis very happy after being repotted.
