Foggy autumn

We had very unusual fog today, lasted the whole day. Here’s a local college campus building looking eternal.

Behind the Conservatory

I do post a lot of photos about Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, but here is a view that few are lucky enough to see. This glass structure is one of the support production greenhouses, seen on a sunny, early-fall afternoon last week. Volunteering has its perks!

Fancy mum leaves

“Fancy” is not a very technical description, but I’ve never seen chrysanthemum leaves with a white border like this. Pretty showy!

Gray sky over the Conservatory

Rain was clearly on the way in this view of the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle from the back.

Almost looks like lightning, doesn’t it?

Star light art

This lovely neon star art was even prettier reflected in the glass panes within the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle at the recent Lusio Lights event. Don’t you love the huge staghorn fern it’s nestled up against?

These pieced fabric panels (not really quilts), lit from behind, glowed so beautifully at the recent Lusio Lights event at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory.

Venus fly trap light art

The Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle has been having some illumination art fundraisers. This is a lit-up carnivorous plant sculpture from last night’s Lusio Lights art event. You just don’t see something like this every day.

Interlaken grapes

Our backyard grape vine is doing pretty well this year. We might get ten bunches! The raccoons decimated the plums but haven’t taken all of these (yet). So sweet and delicious. If you can, plant a grapevine.
