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.

Adorable bell-shaped flowers with a checkerboard pattern

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.

Connectivity

Is there anything more beautiful than a cloudless sunset sky? The softest lavender fading to golden brilliance.

May flowerbed

Even though it’s fall now, May sounds pretty good to me. This is a scene from my May backyard a few years ago.

Seattle Puget Sound sunset

From my photo archives, a scenic summer sunset down at the waterfront in Seattle, with the Olympic Mountains across the water. The scene is so peaceful but yet so lively, to me.

Lavender Japanese anemone

If you have a roomy, shady spot for a Japanese anemone, it has such pretty flowers. I love flowers that come back every year.

Seahurst sunset

Oh my goodness it was lovely the other evening. A quick visit to Seahurst Park in Burien, WA showed a perfect scene.
