Sara's Fave Photos Blog

Check out my new book, Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory. And welcome to Sara's Fave Photos Blog at Love That Image. My goal is to take a photo that is as compelling and beautiful as in real life, with no or minimal Photoshop work. You may copy a photo but link to lovethatimage.com. Thank you for your thoughtful comments, and thanks for visiting.

Colorful painted boxes

Our typical Seattle endless gray wintertime weather is kind of getting to me. I need brightness and color. Here are some painted boxes from my trip to Mexico in March.

Christmas cactus

Visiting my cousin recently in Philadelphia on a snowy day, I marveled that her Christmas cactus was actually blooming right before Christmas. I think I have a Halloween cactus at my house.

Yellow clivia

This graceful flower is related to amaryllis and is a bulb. I saw it growing happily in mass plantings in Mexico in the early spring, and here it was in Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania in May.
