NWFGS bouquet

The Northwest Flower & Garden Show just ended in Seattle WA is a fabulous for the bouquets as well as the garden displays. This darling one has a plant, maybe a succulent, that I have never seen. Anyone know what that big flat green thing is?

Orchids, anthuriums, and other flowers and stems in this stunning display

Flower arrangement structure

Not sure what to call this blue-ribbon winning piece of floral art I saw yesterday at Seattle’s NW Flower & Garden Show (#nwfgs). Not a bouquet, not really an arrangement, more like a sculpture, it towered over onlookers. The complete, enormous arrangement:

By LaVassar Florists, Path to Mindfulness

Here are closeups of the top and bottom parts

Tiers of roses and ferns bedeck this flower sculpture

Purple prickly pear

At the Desert Garden in Phoenix, AZ, a new succulent to me, a purple opuntia or prickly pear.

Prickly pear cactus in Arizona, in tones of lavender or purple. See the heart-shaped paddles?

Polka dot table cloth

I got a new polka dot oilcloth tablecloth. It works with my houseplants, so I am happy. My chair on the left, near my pile of newspapers.

Haemanthus albiflos

I call this the Dr. Seuss plant because it looks so wacky. Checking google images, I see it is sometimes called paintbrush lily. The flower is about 1.5 or 2 inches. It is a bulb related to amaryllis. Notice the tiny leaves in the dirt. Last year it set a few seeds, and I got one to grow!

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!
