Hellebores in sunshine

A friend has a good hellebore collection in her charming garden. Even with the cold weather, they bloom so prettily in late winter and early spring.

Pink pieris

Also called Japanese andromeda, pieris is a stellar shrub that thrives in the Pacific Northwest. And they are fragrant! Little bells of wonderfulness.

Fish hook cactus flowers

Such a cute fish hook little cactus! Be careful, though. The white fluffy stuff is a kind of sunscreen and protects the cactus from wind and water evaporation, too.

Little pink flowers with yellow centers decorate this small fish hook cactus. Careful!

Purple hellebore macro

I love flowers that bloom in wintertime. The weather is still very cold and gray in the Seattle area, but the hellebores are being beautiful for us, already.

Sedum on a pumpkin

Some garden friends got together and we made a bunch of these autumn decor cuties with sedum from our gardens, craft supplies like hot glue, and mini pumpkins. Super easy, super fun. We didn’t scoop and plant with dirt, just glued them on. Maybe some of the sedums will make it enough to be rooted later. Or not.

Some moss, dried cones, and colorful sedum make a beautiful fall decor piece. Doesn’t it look like a flower?

Fall light in my living room

My living room jungle is coming alive with the lower light angling in from the southern exposure.

Red maple tree

This year some trees are doing the magical thing. This maple tree has become completely red, in a friend’s backyard the other day.

Single rose

This is from a Crimson Glory rosebush I rooted from a cutting a few years ago. Here in Seattle we are expecting big rain, finally, so I picked this fall blossom.

Old cedar tree

This cedar tree in my back yard looks like a regular-sized tree, until you realize the fence is six feet tall and the bench is a regular garden bench. Our guess is that the tree is maybe 300 years old. It is getting ready to drop some needles like it does every fall. It is waiting for rain, like we all are in Western Washington.

Very old cedar tree dwarfs the bench below it.

Hardy fuchsia in my garden

Hardy fuchsia is very good in the fall garden, still going strong. Blooms in shade or sun. They look like earrings to me. What do they look like to you?
