Jupiter’s beard in the garden

Jupiter’s beard (Centranthus ruber or red valerian), is very tough. I first saw this tall red flower growing out of a sheer rock face in N. California at the Waldo Grade. I figured, that’s one tough plant, so it’s either easy or invasive to grow. So far, nicely well behaved in my Seattle garden.

Sundew, drosera capensis

I love my little sundew plant. It’s a carnivorous plant that eats fruit flies and soil gnats. A bog plant, so likes to sit in water in the outer pot, and you must never fertilize as the little bugs is all the food it wants. Can you see a speck or two of bugs it’s feasting on right now? When it gets warmer there will be more fruit flies for it.

Sundew drosera capensis very happy after being repotted.

Rose garden

The front roses getting ready for their first bloom. This year the little bed with the foxgloves, hardy fuchsia, and armeria looks good, too.

Fritillaria or checkered tulips

These are not really tulips but bulbs in the lily family, and first appeared in the 1500s. I remember seeing them in old Dutch still lifes. They come back every year in my garden in Seattle.

Grape hyacinths

Also called muscari, these darling little bell-shaped flowers are a favorite early spring flower, even though they have no fragrance. See my pink magnolia in the background, almost blooming? Spring is truly here.

Spring crocus

It’s a special bonus when the time change day is sunny, especially in Seattle. This little crocus and its friend greeted me, all wet from the rain just earlier.

Tawny the horse

From ten years ago, Tawny grazing the horse pasture next door, taken from my yard. A big house and garage are there now, all fenced in. Life is change.

Kitty in grass shadows

Oh, photo archives are a treasure. So many photos, and after a few years, some are completely new to me. I took that? Apparently I did, on a garden tour ten years ago. Here’s to July, and kitties, and sunshine!

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.
