Purple hellebore macro

I love flowers that bloom in wintertime. The weather is still very cold and gray in the Seattle area, but the hellebores are being beautiful for us, already.

Christmas ficus tree

No room this year for a regular Christmas tree, but it looks quite festive anyway, don’t you think?

Thanksgiving cactus

You can tell by the points on the leaves that it’s actually a Thanksgiving cactus, not a Christmas cactus. It actually bloomed right on time this year. Make sure you take care of them more like regular houseplants, don’t let them roast in the sun or get super dry like regular desert cacti.

Thanksgiving cactus blooms in the late fall sunlight. Magenta with white flowers are so showy.

Air plant shadows

After a nice soak and shake, these mostly tillandsia air plants are almost dry enough to go back on my windowsill.

My spot

This is where I have my coffee every morning. The sun comes in the south window this time of year, a blessing for dark Seattle. I love having plants right there.

Hardy fuchsia in my garden

Hardy fuchsia is very good in the fall garden, still going strong. Blooms in shade or sun. They look like earrings to me. What do they look like to you?

Tree leaves backlit

Got to go on a very short woodsy walk in Central Washington, haven’t for a very long time. The sun peeked out and the leaves above lit up. Bliss for me.

Leafy pattern above. Can you see the shaggy lichen on the branches.

Double Delight roses

These are some of my very favorite roses, with their sweet and spicy scent. You can see the color varies from bloom to bloom.

Late hostas

In a local Seattle park, I saw a different kind of hosta that’s only starting to bloom right now in mid-August, much later than mine at home nearby. The starry white flowers had a sweet fragrance.
