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.

Orchid cactus

These giant orchid cactus now at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory are each as big as my hand!

Orchid cactus or Epiphyllum is one of the showiest flowers, with white stamen and anthers

Bleeding hearts

For a brief time it was sunny out. The garden is in bloom.

I heart bleeding hearts! Pink and white spring flowers in my yard.

Rose and orchid bouquet at NWFGS

I am still enjoying my photos from this spring’s Northwest Flower & Garden Show in Seattle. This stunner was on a tall glass pedestal.
