Free calendar

In honor of Inauguration Day yesterday and the big change it represents for the USA, I created a 2021 photo calendar of beautiful bouquets, all taken over the last few years at Seattle’s NW Flower & Garden Festival (formerly the NW Flower & Garden Show). #NWFGS #NWFGF You are welcome to download and share this Bouquets 2021 Calendar.

If you print it out, I suggest at perhaps at 80% size (for even borders), centered on the page, printing on only ONE side of the page—a little craft project for you. Enjoy!

In the comments, I’d love to know your favorite photo page.

Backlit amaryllis

I’ve gotten a lot of pleasure out of the planted big amaryllis bulb I got in December. This is its third flower stalk!

Spring flowers in containers

These lovely spring flowers were in a display at Wave Hill NY one March day a few years ago. Wouldn’t you love these on your front step?

Yellow brugmansia

Like my last post, this photo was taken exactly ten years ago at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory. I hear the fragrance in the evenings was incredible.

These flowers are so elegant and graceful, but I found it surprisingly difficult to get a photo that showed it. I hope this one succeeded.

Brugmansia at the Volunteer Park Conservatory

I took this photo exactly ten years ago, when the Ecuador Pink brugmansia, or Angels Trumpet, was in unbelievable bloom. Seattle’s beloved Volunteer Park Conservatory is still closed due to covid, but let’s hope for a reopening soon.

Drying hydrangeas

This is the perfect time to see if any of your hydrangeas are ripe for drying. The petals need to be crepe-y,  sort of wrinkled, but still have good color. I put them in an inch of water, at the most. When the water evaporates in a few days, the flowers should still look wonderful. Voila!

Three roses

While natural light is my fave, here’s some person-made light illuminating my bouquet of garden roses.
