Red and pink rose garden

My roses in the front yard are loving this warm, dry weather, even though the sky is so hazy with smoke from the Canada wildfires.

Julia Child rose

My new buttery yellow ‘Julia Child’ rose is so happy where I planted her. New growth, buds, everything.

Volunteer Park Conservatory outside

Before the fires in British Columbia, Canada started making Seattle air so smoky (see post below), last week saw sunny skies in Seattle. Here is a photo of one of my favorite places in the world, Volunteer Park Conservatory, at the end of the day. The outside plantings this season are especially gorgeous, and these photos don’t do them justice. Love that purple and chartreuse! Bonus flowerbed close-up image below.

Rose garden

In front of my house, the rose garden is in its first flush. The red rose is ‘Proud Land’ and the lavender plants are blooming well nearby.

The roses of early summertime.

Snowfire rose

The roses are getting started very nicely.

Blood red petals with a snow white outside of the petal make Snowfire rose a real standout

Black petunias

I’d heard about these black petunias and finally saw them in person. Truly black, surprisingly pretty, almost iridescent. I believe they call the variety Black Mamba.

Pink hydrangea

Had a truly lovely visit to PowellsWood garden in Federal Way, WA the other day. Magnificent! Only three acres, but so lovingly created and tended. Kudos to them.

Darling pink hydrangeas, perhaps a tree?
