Tulip and bluebells

Tulips naturalize if conditions are just right. They don’t like any water in the summers. But bluebells bloom anywhere, and just at the same time. Good combo, yes?

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

Jade vine

Blooming at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, Strongylodon macrobotrys, or jade vine. The spent flowers fall still looking perfect, but unreal. Below the three fallen flowers is the plant as it grows. Isn’t that color like nothing you’ve ever seen? So graceful. LATER NOTE: This plant is blooming for the first time in 20 years!

Saltwater State Park view

Saltwater Park is in Washington State, a bit south of Seattle. I’m in a sky view mood lately.

Ostepspermum ‘Spoon White’

There’s a neat garden area in downtown Edmonds, WA that is planted so beautifully. At this time of year, I was amazed to see so many blooming and unusual plants, all beautifully tended. Many were identified, as well! Kudos to Edmonds.

Such a pretty and strange looking flower, about 2 inches (5 cm) across.
