Cotoneaster berries

The cotoneaster berries are super red this year. Birds and photographers love their winter redness. Note: this plant has an extremely weird pronunciation. You might think it was “cotton Easter,” but no. It’s actually pronounced cuh-tone-ee-AST-er. Isn’t that something?

Reaching for the sun

In Seattle, houseplants at a south-facing window get actual sunshine in the winter months.

Fall color at the peak

Autumn leaves have their own timetable. This from a couple of weeks ago, now all gone. The peak!

Red, orange and yellow, with blue skies and evergreens: the autumn rainbow

Old cedar tree

This is the bottom half of our giant cedar tree, estimated to be perhaps 300 years old. There’s about twice as much tree above as is shown. The trunk is four or five feet in diameter. The recent wind has dropped the older leaves onto the lawn, eventually to be raked into mulch. Many, many birds live in its branches. I love our tree.

Leaves in water

Autumn leaves floating in a plant saucer. We leave it out as a sort of birdbath for critters. In the spring it attracted a pair of mallard ducks!

The moon in the trees

Autumn at night is beautiful, too. Can you see the dark side of the moon, softly glowing?

I brought the plants inside

I live in the Pacific Northwest so it gets kind of cold, with some frost, at least, most years. So that means moving the houseplants inside (ideally on an overcast day) and then finding room for them, which is the hard part. I’m still rearranging. South windows are so great in the winter, especially in Seattle. That low-angled sunshine (when it appears) will come all the way into the room in a few weeks. Outside the window is a peach tree on the right and on the left in back, a huge, ancient cedar tree.

Drying hydrangeas

This is the perfect time to see if any of your hydrangeas are ripe for drying. The petals need to be crepe-y,  sort of wrinkled, but still have good color. I put them in an inch of water, at the most. When the water evaporates in a few days, the flowers should still look wonderful. Voila!

Autumn leaf shadows

There was a brief bit of sun late in the day and it lit up an orange tree.

Reading chair with plants

I took the houseplants in and now the autumn sun comes in this window. My favorite place to read.

Sky over Puget Sound

At the Cove in Normandy Park WA last evening, the sky was mostly gray but quite beautiful, I thought.

Dahlias at the Market

Thinking about the flowers at Pike Place Market in Seattle. This was taken on today’s date a few years ago. Enjoy this abundance!
