Double Delight roses

These are some of my very favorite roses, with their sweet and spicy scent. You can see the color varies from bloom to bloom.

Brilliantly colored Double Delight roses live up to their name

Pink oxalis

A very nice volunteer plant in my Seattle garden, grows in a clump with those cute clover-type leaves, blooms OK in shade or sun.

Flower basket display

At the incredible Bayview Nursery in Whidbey Island, WA, the combination of horticultural skill AND beautiful, artful display came together brilliantly in this tall raised basket of starry petunias.

Pink peony

The peonies are beginning to bloom! I am so excited. Even only halfway open the perfume is astonishing.

Magnolia tree in bloom

A quick flash of sun against a dark rainy sky, that’s what I love about spring garden photos. The pink dogwood to the right is just in bud, but the Japanese magnolia is in full bloom.

Fish hook cactus

I love this little cutie, and it blooms in the spring for me, even though there’s not a whole lot of sun for it here in Seattle, even in my south window. But be careful! Each flower is about a centimeter across, less than half an inch. The hairy stuff helps protect it from sun and water evaporation.

Roses and orchids

Someone sent me the most wonderful flowers as a get-well bouquet. I am beyond thrilled. It will help speed recovery for sure!

Orchids and roses in a charming bouquet, for me!

Thanksgiving cactus, magenta and white

I used to call this a Christmas cactus but I learned that the leaves with the points are Thanksgiving cactuses (or cacti), and there are also Easter cactuses. But it’s not even Halloween yet!

My Thanksgiving cactus is blooming happily in October

Autumn roses

Not this year’s roses, but picked exactly at this time of year. Every year I reward myself with an autumn bouquet.
