Peace rose after rain

A soft rain on the roses is a marvelous thing, when the sun reappears.

Geese in a park

Got to visit the Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Garden near the Ballard Locks in Seattle the other day. So lovely. Here are some large geese feeding on a lawn.

Irises and lilacs

From my front door towards the street, last week in late afternoon light, my favorite. Indeed the golden hour!

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!

A bouquet of pink weigela with variegated leaves, in an old blue lusterware vase. Flowers are about 1″ or 2.5 cm across.

Pansies in the lawn

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

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

Lady’s mantle

This pretty low plant is so poetically named. It doesn’t do much in terms of flowers, but the odd rain shower is so thrilling on their leaves.

Shade-loving Lady’s mantle is so cute after any rain at all. Diamonds!

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

Neon love

See previous post for another image from a recent light-art installation at Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle. This fundraiser was called Lusio III, and the art was incredible. This image is one of my top faves, EVER!
