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

Jade vine

Blooming at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, Strongylodon macrobotrys, or jade vine. The spent flowers fall still looking perfect, but unreal. Below the three fallen flowers is the plant as it grows. Isn’t that color like nothing you’ve ever seen? So graceful. LATER NOTE: This plant is blooming for the first time in 20 years!

Christmas cactus

Visiting my cousin recently in Philadelphia on a snowy day, I marveled that her Christmas cactus was actually blooming right before Christmas. I think I have a Halloween cactus at my house.
