Houseplants in the living room

Like the kitchen shadows post below, I love bringing in the patio plants when the Seattle weather turns cold. On a sunny afternoon the feel in the room is glorious.

A south-facing window in Seattle is kind to houseplants in the winter time.

Sun shadows in the kitchen

I love a south-facing window as the sun gets lower in the sky. The plants love it, too!

November sunshine streams into my kitchen on a recent sunny day, lighting up the purple oxalis and other plants

Teensy orchids

I know I’ve been using such technical plant names, but I can never remember the real names. Anyway, this stalk that looks like fountain grass is really little bitty orchids! So saith the Volunteer Park Conservatory, and they should know.

Behind the Conservatory

I do post a lot of photos about Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, but here is a view that few are lucky enough to see. This glass structure is one of the support production greenhouses, seen on a sunny, early-fall afternoon last week. Volunteering has its perks!

Fancy mum leaves

“Fancy” is not a very technical description, but I’ve never seen chrysanthemum leaves with a white border like this. Pretty showy!

Autumn color in Seattle

A fine old building in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood is showing some fall color.

Star light art

This lovely neon star art was even prettier reflected in the glass panes within the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle at the recent Lusio Lights event. Don’t you love the huge staghorn fern it’s nestled up against?

Venus fly trap light art

The Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle has been having some illumination art fundraisers. This is a lit-up carnivorous plant sculpture from last night’s Lusio Lights art event. You just don’t see something like this every day.

Large light art sculpture of a Venus fly trap. The light colors kept shifting.

Interlaken grapes

Our backyard grape vine is doing pretty well this year. We might get ten bunches! The raccoons decimated the plums but haven’t taken all of these (yet). So sweet and delicious. If you can, plant a grapevine.

Perennial sunflower

A friend gave me a start of this perennial sunflower plant last spring. It flowers in September: YAY!

Forest scene

Last week went camping in Gifford Pinchot National Forest in Washington, not too far from Mt. Rainier. This was the view from our campsite one morning.
