Spring blooms in the garden

The weather has been so very warm and sunny. I adore it but know the rhodies and dogwood won’t last long in this heat.

Pink dogwood at left, and red rhododendrons with pink weigela between them. Iris buds lower left.

Variegated pink weigela

I love this shrub, pronounced “why-GHEEL-a.” Not only is the foliage extremely nice and accepts pruning well, but it has these super pretty pink flowers as well!

Happy Mother’s Day! Let’s focus on one of the many things that unite us—a woman gave birth to each and every one of us. Thanks, Mom!

Backyard in May

Here in Western Washington State, green with rhodies is the signature look for May. This is my backyard from my bedroom window yesterday morning.

Pink dogwood, red rhodies and lots of green in my backyard in the Seattle area in May

Pink rhododendrons

The very small city I live in, Normandy Park, WA, is noted for its rhododendrons and evergreens. This was at my house yesterday.

A cedar tree maybe 300 years old in the background, and a pink rhodie with a dark pink throat.

Apple blossoms

It was overcast but the little apple tree was blooming anyhow. Hope the bees find it.

White with delicate tinges of pink: apple blossom perfection

Pink trees in Seattle

We were downtown Seattle for my birthday and I was so happy to see this street scene filled with puffy pink trees!

Frittilaria at the flower show

Back in February, frittilaria at the NW Flower & Garden show in Seattle—soon appearing in your backyard, if you planted some bulbs.

Delightful frittilaria, also known as “checkered tulips,” are pretty easy to grow in the garden

Illuminated cactus

My favorite haunt in Seattle, the Volunteer Park Conservatory, has been having light-art events. I love them. Here are some cactus plants with paper flowers added, all illuminated with black light.
