Almost spring

Seattle’s weather has been colder and wetter than normal. Here is a plum tree in my back yard, trying so hard to bloom, taken on a rare break in the rain.

Last spring I was in Longwood Gardens outside of Philadelphia. Enjoy the light, as we are in our gray weather now, here in Seattle.

Sunset at the Conservatory

It’s been a Volunteer Park Conservatory kind of week. Still waiting for the Corpse Lily (“Dougsley”) to bloom and emit its stench. In the meantime, here’s a view of the sunset through the Bromeliad house.

Longwood Gardens flower balls

I was lucky enough to visit Longwood Gardens near Philadelphia, PA just a few days ago. What an enormous,, impressive and gorgeous place. The photo below is inside one of their huge indoor conservatory spaces.

Rainy rose

We had drizzle the last few days. The new plants got a break, the established ones are still thirsty, but the roses became bejewelled. NOTE: I am going off line for a couple of weeks. See you all when I get back. Check back early June for more pretty pictures!
