Rose harvest

I hate cutting my roses since I can see the rose bed from the house and they look so lovely out there, blooming for me and any passers-by. But I had to pick them ahead of the big rain.

Lavender and bees

I just got a new camera, a Canon G9X Mark II. It’s been several years and I was overdue. Here is the first video I’ve shot with it.

Here’s a still shot. Pretty nice, don’t you think?

Spring lilacs and bluebells

My morning view of the front yard. Planting the bluebells only three years ago was a success! Soon they will fade but the roses and lavender will take over. If only the lilacs lasted longer.

Double lilacs

Most lilac blossoms have only one row of petals. But this one has an abundance of everything lilac.

Free calendar

In honor of Inauguration Day yesterday and the big change it represents for the USA, I created a 2021 photo calendar of beautiful bouquets, all taken over the last few years at Seattle’s NW Flower & Garden Festival (formerly the NW Flower & Garden Show). #NWFGS #NWFGF You are welcome to download and share this Bouquets 2021 Calendar.

If you print it out, I suggest at perhaps at 80% size (for even borders), centered on the page, printing on only ONE side of the page—a little craft project for you. Enjoy!

In the comments, I’d love to know your favorite photo page.
