‘Julia Child’ rose

Oh the joy, two new rosebushes for an anniversary gift. This beauty is ‘Julia Child,’ named in homage to the queen of butter.

Butter yellow rose, as it should be, named after American icon Julia Child. And sweetly fragrant as well.

Cream brugmansia

Brugmansia, or Angels Trumpet, is challenging to photograph, although so very graceful and exciting in person. This one had a heavenly fragrance in the early evening.

Tulip and bluebells

Tulips naturalize if conditions are just right. They don’t like any water in the summers. But bluebells bloom anywhere, and just at the same time. Good combo, yes?

Gardenia in the rain

I adore gardenias. They were my mother’s favorite flower.

Raindrops only add to the perfection of this intensely fragrant gardenia blossom.

Fritillaria

These darling checkered tulips (not really, but that’s what they’re sometimes called) were enjoying a beam of sunlight at the recent NW Flower & Garden Show in Seattle, WA. #NWFGS

Fritillaria, or checkered tulip, can be seen in antique still-life paintings, and is easily grown in Pacific NW
