Notecard, Angel’s Trumpet

Here’s another notecard image. I love this one so much I used it on the cover of my book, “Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory.”

Angel's Trumpet, or Brugmansia. The buds are yellow, the flowers pink. This is the Ecuador Pink variety.

Spring garden scene

I got a new camera, another little Canon, the PowerShot 120. I don’t know all the features yet, but took it out in my yard. I like it!

Sun beams through a columnar apple tree, and shines on a cherry and plum tree in bloom. Bluebells and an iris are in the foreground

Scallion buds

These plants are called green onions on the West coast, and scallions on the East coast, where I grew up. They grow well in my Seattle garden, coming back and multiplying each year so nicely.

Magenta tulip field

Hope you are not tired of tulips. See the snow in the distance in this one? Here are many rows of colorful tulips in the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, a perfect illustration of the laws of perspective.

Haupt Conservatory

Thought you’d like to see a picture of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, in the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. I visited at this time of year a few years ago. What a great spring scene!
