Perennial sunflower

A friend gave me a start of this perennial sunflower plant last spring. It flowers in September: YAY!

Haven’t posted a new photo in awhile of my favorite place in Seattle, the Volunteer Park Conservatory on Capitol Hill.

Backlit yellow rose

This yellow beauty is my new favorite rose, my David Austin rose Julia Child. Butter yellow, for sure!

Sunshine glows through the petals of this Julia Child rose, seen from the back. Even the sepals are graceful.

McCaw Hall wall

These metallic and gleaming color fields are so very beautiful to me. And padded! We went to see the ballet and this was a real bonus.

Art car

Not sure what this is supposed to be, but I love it. Your thoughts?

Painted old house

San Francisco isn’t the only town with beautifully painted old houses. This painted lady lives in the University District of Seattle, on “The Avenue.”

Variegated pink weigela

I love this shrub, pronounced “why-GHEEL-a.” Not only is the foliage extremely nice and accepts pruning well, but it has these super pretty pink flowers as well!

Happy Mother’s Day! Let’s focus on one of the many things that unite us—a woman gave birth to each and every one of us. Thanks, Mom!

Illuminated cactus

My favorite haunt in Seattle, the Volunteer Park Conservatory, has been having light-art events. I love them. Here are some cactus plants with paper flowers added, all illuminated with black light.

Grape hyacinths (Muscari)

Some flowers are already blooming in the back yard. I do love these little bulbs. Their green foliage starts so early in the year, they multiply nicely, and they bloom the same time as daffodils, pretty much. Great combo.

Hydrangea macro

Hydrangeas are some of the most beautiful flowers in close ups. I see that I have already done two posts with the title Hydrangea Macro! (Search for hydrangea in the search bar on the right.) These multi-hued ones were blooming at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory’s Spring and Easter display, going on right now. Go see them!

Happy 10th blogoversary to me!

Believe it or not, I’ve been posting my top fave photos on this blog for TEN YEARS! In honor of the occasion, I think I’ll post a photo of me, which I never do, taken by a friend on my recent trip to San Miguel.

Thank you, dear reader, for your friendly visits, and especially your comments. Right this minute, there are 24,319 comments in the blog. And not one comment—not even one!—has ever been anything but kind, sometimes insightful, and occasionally even admiring. What a different world from some other online spaces. Thank you all. Here’s to another ten years.

Me in Mexico in February.

Colorful San Miguel shop

One of the pleasures of travel is shops like this. So entertaining, just to see the colors.
