Lavender Japanese anemone

If you have a roomy, shady spot for a Japanese anemone, it has such pretty flowers. I love flowers that come back every year.

Home-grown peaches

Our young ‘Frost’ peach tree is about three years old. It doesn’t get peach-leaf curl and has such fragrant, sweet yellow fruit, even ripening in Seattle’s short summers. Time for a cobbler!

Yellow begonias

Looking through the archives (I MUST get rid of all those less-than-stellar photos and unclog my hard drive) I found this photo of golden yellow begonias from Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory taken in March, 2010. I really like it and hope you do, too.

Pink lavender

Not everyone knows that the lavender plant comes in several colors, and one is pink!

Rain on hostas

We were lucky enough to have a good rain; Seattle has been quite dry this spring. All the garden plants enjoyed it.

Water droplets like jewels on ribbed hosta leaves. Note the flower buds emerging.

Red raspberries just picked

Our berry bushes are producing! Thankfully neither the squirrels or the birds seem that interested.

Crab cakes at Chihuly

I don’t usually post food photos, but this was spectacular! We went to the Chihuly Collections Cafe in Seattle and my crab cakes were almost too pretty to eat. But not quite!

Bees love weigela

I learned that weigela (why-GHEEL-a) is related to honeysuckle. No wonder its sweet smell attracts bees!

In praise of mothering

You don’t have to be a mother to mother someone. Extra warmth and kindness makes anyone feel loved.

Big leaves

This perennial plant with huge leaves emerging at the Seatac Highline Botanical Garden might be ‘Smaragd’ bronzeleaf rodgersia (R. podophylla ‘Smaragd’) because that’s what looks closest on google images. Let me know if that’s not right.

Toothed and notched huge leaves of bronzeleaf rodgersia. I think.
