Perennial sunflower

These cheerful yellow perennial sunflowers come back every year, spread in a reasonable manner, bloom when not that much is happening, and look good even under smoky conditions. Seattle’s air is not too good, but it’s better than other places for sure.

Yellow to the max!

Orange daylilies

The good rain we’ve had this spring has been great for the garden. The back flowerbed hasn’t had much attention from me but the daylilies and rose campion are doing so well. Enjoy the glorious summer sunshine!

Rainy rosebud

Seattle certainly has been having a cool and rainy spring and summer, so far. The way roses look after a light rain, however, is priceless.

Magnolia springtime

I love this time of year. Seattle does Spring so very well. My magnolia tree is loving this week of sunshine.

Fritillaria or checkered tulips

These are not really tulips but bulbs in the lily family, and first appeared in the 1500s. I remember seeing them in old Dutch still lifes. They come back every year in my garden in Seattle.

Spring crocus

It’s a special bonus when the time change day is sunny, especially in Seattle. This little crocus and its friend greeted me, all wet from the rain just earlier.

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.

Bird of Paradise bud

OK, now I know why these plants are called Bird of Paradise. Doesn’t this flower bud look just like a bird’s head?
