Haemanthus albiflos

I call this the Dr. Seuss plant because it looks so wacky. Checking google images, I see it is sometimes called paintbrush lily. The flower is about 1.5 or 2 inches. It is a bulb related to amaryllis. Notice the tiny leaves in the dirt. Last year it set a few seeds, and I got one to grow!

Venus fly trap light art

The Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle has been having some illumination art fundraisers. This is a lit-up carnivorous plant sculpture from last night’s Lusio Lights art event. You just don’t see something like this every day.

Large light art sculpture of a Venus fly trap. The light colors kept shifting.

Peruvian lily macro

Someone gave me a truly marvelous bouquet of alstroemeria, or Peruvian lily. I have no idea where she got such magnificent ones. This image is a real fave of mine, straight out of the camera…See above for a photo of the whole bouquet.

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.
