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.

While strolling Burien WA’s Art Walk last week, I saw this mixed blossom bouquet in such an unusual color scheme, sitting in front of a business.

Columbine in shadow

The columbines look very good this year. They respond very well to an acid fertilizer in the spring, and the flowers are big and plentiful. Here is one pretty one in a shaft of sunlight, with some rose campion in the foreground.

Red rose

My roses have begun. This year I used a better kind of fertilizer, with micro-nutrients, and am VERY happy with the results. Worth the money.
