Cactus at the Conservatory

Just a year ago, took a quick tour of the Cactus House at Volunteer Park Conservatory, in Seattle. I hope they can open again soon. We all miss it so much. Bonus image below!

Pretty little hen-and-chick succulents (not cactus!)

Bonus image:

Stunning accordian-pleated cactus (also a succulent!). When they have more water, they expand.

Rainbow harvest

Finally we’re getting some warm, sunny weather in Seattle. The tomatoes are loving it!

Forest scene at Big Creek, WA

This campground photo from several years ago I offer as a way to remember what the woods feels like. Not this year for us, but maybe next year.

Lemon cucumbers

If you have never eaten lemon cucumbers, poor you. They are delicious! They are called that because when you let them (over)ripen, they appear the size and shape of lemons, but still taste like regular cucumbers. As a public service announcement I offer the correct stage to pick them. They should have just a tiny hint of yellow starting. Select ones in the store at this color; do not buy if dark yellow. The inner seeds are hardly developed at all. So tender, sweet and crunchy! Rub off the little prickly things and you can even eat the skin at this stage, but I do peel them. Let’s hear it for backyard gardening!

Garden stringbeans

Stringbeans were my mom’s favorite vegetable. Ever grow something because it reminds you of someone?

Solstice houseplant

I have a kokedama houseplant that is my own little Stonehenge. Even though the window faces north, for a only few days at the Solstice, sunshine pours in.

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.

January in California

Here’s a little video clip of a January trip to Sonoma County, CA a few years ago. Scenic barn! Live oak! Birdsong!

And a still from the same scene. I wish you a scenic 2020.

Green lasers

The last Lusio illumination art show at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, was so amazing, lighting all the tropical plants and the 1912 historic building in great washes of color. So many talented light artists.

Cabin porch

We spent a few days in this little cabin in the Olympic National Forest. It was built in 1907, and it just so happens we met the granddaughter of the man who built it, a Mr. Finch. In any case, a rainy day on a porch like this is just heaven. Note the yoga mat.

Tomato harvest

And don’t forget the lemon cucumbers, two kinds of string beans, or the truly sweet Italian plums. Late summer is the best!
