Venus fly trap light art

The Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle has been having some illumination art fundraisers. This is a lit-up carnivorous plant sculpture from last night’s Lusio Lights art event. You just don’t see something like this every day.

Large light art sculpture of a Venus fly trap. The light colors kept shifting.

Interlaken grapes

Our backyard grape vine is doing pretty well this year. We might get ten bunches! The raccoons decimated the plums but haven’t taken all of these (yet). So sweet and delicious. If you can, plant a grapevine.

Backyard interlaken seedless, red, table grape vine, ripening well in Seattle’s short summer.

Perennial sunflower

A friend gave me a start of this perennial sunflower plant last spring. It flowers in September: YAY!

Magnolia blossom with bud

Just for fun, a photo from the other side of the year. Should be perfect for our friends down under…

Rose bouquet

Rain is predicted, so I went out and cut some roses.

I’m posting a second photo of this same bouquet from a different angle. Which do you prefer?

This is in honor of the 25,000th comment received on this blog, on the Cherry Tomatoes post below (thank you, Magical Mystery Teacher!). Every single comment I have ever received here has been kind and positive. What a fine group of people are photo-blog visitors!

Haze reflected in pool

Some friends have a truly spectacular backyard. Their flowers are extraordinary, and that’s just the one border. But even at that special place, several smoky days ago, the hazy air was an unwelcome visitor.

Alstroemeria bouquet

A friend gave me a magnificent bouquet of Peruvian lilies, or alstroemeria. Each flower was at least 2″ or even 3″ wide (5-8 cm). I’ve never seen such an array of rainbow colors in this flower. See a close up in this post below.

Almost perfect cut flower (sadly no fragrance), Peruvian lilies make such a fine bouquet

Fuzzy peaches

Homegrown peaches may be fuzzy, but the ineffable sweet perfume of them…

I think this is a Frost peach tree. It doesn’t get leaf curl and is producing sweet peaches in Seattle

Tomato harvest

I fertilized my tomatoes a bit better this year, and they show it. Sweet Sungold cherry tomatoes, with Early Girls and some San Marzano romas. I love the little green hats they wear that show how very fresh they are.

Red and orange tomatoes in my backyard harvest at the beginning of August. A warm summer in Seattle!
