Cle Elum River

Camping at Salmon La Sac a couple of weeks ago, the Cle Elum River was very low. Let’s hope today’s rain here in Seattle can help the fires and low rivers to the east.

White brugmansia

The cream-colored brugmansias (Angels Trumpets) with their long, twisty buds are now in Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory! I adore them, and the scent is truly of the angels.
