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.

Muscari

Muscari, or grape hyacinth, was one of the flowers I saw everywhere at the NW Flower & Garden show last week, along with fritillaria, or checkered tulips (see below). Their light blue color was very sweet to see, and will be perfect for an Easter nosegay. #NWFGS

Cactus flower cake

At the recent NW Flower & Garden Show in Seattle, one display area had some incredible “cakes” decorated with flowers. I loved the colors on this one.

Orange tropical flower

Anyone know this one? LATER NOTE: Appears to be a kind of Leucospermum, also known as pincushion protea.

Unusual large orange flower with thin petals and curls in the center. Know it?

Fritillaria

These darling checkered tulips (not really, but that’s what they’re sometimes called) were enjoying a beam of sunlight at the recent NW Flower & Garden Show in Seattle, WA. #NWFGS

Fritillaria, or checkered tulip, can be seen in antique still-life paintings, and is easily grown in Pacific NW

The theme of Seattle’s NW Flower & Garden show seems to be edibles, even in the lobby bouquets.
