Illuminated mushrooms light art

At Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, there have been some fabulous Lusio light art, music and dancing fundraisers, and the last one this year is coming up on Saturday, October 19. Here’s a photo from the one in January. So much fun!

Reading chair with plants

I took the houseplants in and now the autumn sun comes in this window. My favorite place to read.

May flowerbed

Even though it’s fall now, May sounds pretty good to me. This is a scene from my May backyard a few years ago.

Cabin porch

We spent a few days in this little cabin in the Olympic National Forest. It was built in 1907, and it just so happens we met the granddaughter of the man who built it, a Mr. Finch. In any case, a rainy day on a porch like this is just heaven. Note the yoga mat.

A quiet spot for listening to the rain

Flower border

Always so challenging to get the flower border to bloom in concert, right? Even though the light is overcast, the flowers are cooperating, sort of.

Rain on hostas

We were lucky enough to have a good rain; Seattle has been quite dry this spring. All the garden plants enjoyed it.

Water droplets like jewels on ribbed hosta leaves. Note the flower buds emerging.

Bees love weigela

I learned that weigela (why-GHEEL-a) is related to honeysuckle. No wonder its sweet smell attracts bees!

In praise of mothering

You don’t have to be a mother to mother someone. Extra warmth and kindness makes anyone feel loved.

Big leaves

This perennial plant with huge leaves emerging at the Seatac Highline Botanical Garden might be ‘Smaragd’ bronzeleaf rodgersia (R. podophylla ‘Smaragd’) because that’s what looks closest on google images. Let me know if that’s not right.

Toothed and notched huge leaves of bronzeleaf rodgersia. I think.
