Pink hydrangea

Had a truly lovely visit to PowellsWood garden in Federal Way, WA the other day. Magnificent! Only three acres, but so lovingly created and tended. Kudos to them.

Darling pink hydrangeas, perhaps a tree?

Mammatus clouds

I’ve never seen these clouds in this area (Seattle). I believe they are called mammatus. Yes, there were thunderstorms later.

Lilacs in the rain

I do love lilacs. They look good even in this wettest year ever in Seattle.

Two apple trees

A couple of days ago, the two columnar apple trees near my patio looked like this, not quite blooming. Wonder what two warm and sunny days will do?

Bluebells and forget-me-nots, a pruned grapevine, and two columnar apple trees almost in bloom. Scallions (green onions) blooming at lower left, and a multi-graft plum tree in the distance.

Cream brugmansia

Brugmansia, or Angels Trumpet, is challenging to photograph, although so very graceful and exciting in person. This one had a heavenly fragrance in the early evening.
