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.

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

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

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!

Grape hyacinths (Muscari)

Some flowers are already blooming in the back yard. I do love these little bulbs. Their green foliage starts so early in the year, they multiply nicely, and they bloom the same time as daffodils, pretty much. Great combo.

Poinsettias, outdoors

One of the great pleasures of a foreign trip is seeing what grows well there. I was so pleased to see this outdoor display of poinsettia plants in San Miguel de Allende, in Mexico, last month.

Succulent rosettes

On my recent trip to Mexico, I saw some extremely pretty succulents in my sister’s garden. Don’t they look like roses?
