Mysterious daffodils

Yesterday at Seattle’s Northwest Flower & Garden Festival I did enjoy the forced spring bulbs, especially this uplit and almost spooky daffodil.

Mysterious lighting for this harbinger of spring, the daffodil.

Merry Solstice!

This is my favorite holiday of the year. The light returns! A happy Winter Solstice to you. We can all agree that celebrating light is a wonderful thing.

May your own world continue to brighten.

Pink and white Thanksgiving cactus

This little darling always blooms at Halloween rather than wait for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving cactus plants have the pointy upper points on their leaves or clades. Here it is on a beautiful sunny day we had recently. In Seattle we cherish sunny days so much.

The magenta-pink-and-white flowers on this Thanksgiving cactus are so showy!

Rose on a table

This is a late bloom of Crimson Glory, a deep cherry-red rose my friend rooted for me many years ago. It smells so intensely sweet!

Brought in roses before the rain

My bedroom overlooks our rose bed, which has about fifteen rosebushes and is in front of the house. Lots of people walk by with their dogs, or just stroll by for a walk. So I am reluctant to cut any roses for bouquets, thus reducing the view for myself and passersby. But a big rain was forecast (finally!), so I cut most of them. Once it rains hard on roses, they don’t look so good for anyone, so best to bring them in.

If only you could smell them, so incredibly sweet! Homegrown roses smell the best.

September tomatoes

The tomato yield has been super this year. I got them in our new raised beds in late May, which is early for tomatoes in Seattle. I thought it might be too early, but the soil warms up a bit faster in raised beds and I think that made a big difference. Also we had evenly beautiful weather this summer, the most beautiful summer I ever remember in the 20 years plus I’ve been here. I almost feel guilty since so many other places in the world had difficult weather, to say the least. But I have enjoyed the balmy, sunny days so much.

Early Girls (the bigger red ones) and lots of yellow pears. The darker burgundy-colored ones are very sweet. Plenty more coming up.

The roses are looking beautiful at my favorite time of day, summertime early evening.

Blackberry picking

Berries have been gorgeous this year, at home and roadside. These blackberry vines were just loaded! A crisp ensued. Summer happiness.

Big juicy blackberries, ready to pick.

Peace rose serenity

What is it about roses? I love them so much. In the dusky late light, still so very beautiful.

Evening lavender garden

I adore these long days when I get to be in the garden in the dreamy twilight. Today I cut some of the lavender. There is a lot!
