Pansies in the lawn

Pansies like to go everywhere. These purple ones have escaped into my lawn.

Pink lily macro

This year’s Northwest Flower & Garden Show in Seattle is now a Festival, not a Show. Not sure if their hashtag #NWFGS is still a thing.

Here’s a magnificent Oriental lily, complete with pollen-laden anthers.

Sometimes florists remove the pollen-heavy anthers because they do stain clothing. But I prefer them with a natural look.

Hyacinth bud

Sometimes I think I enjoy buds almost more than the flowers. Possibilities! Here’s to 2018 developing into a very good year for us all.
