Roses before the storm

They predicted a big rainstorm so I went and picked most of the open roses that looked good. It’s raining hard now!

Fall color trees

Gotta love the colors of autumn.

Brilliant fall colors light up the October landscape even in the Pacific Northwest

Hailstorm

We were in Issaquah, WA, finishing up dinner after a day selling jewelry at Salmon Days, and the sky just opened. I have never seen a such hailstorm (with lightning! thunder!). The roar of the hail and rain, an inch of hail on the ground, and rivers of water and ice because the leaves and hail clogged all the drains. Expect the unexpected, I guess.

Lyndhurst Mansion

Visited the Gothic Revival Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown, NY, on the Hudson River. Naturally, I was particularly interested in the rose garden. Just this once, I am including FOUR photos in this post.

Cherry tomato harvest

Finally the warm days have made the tomato thing happen in the garden. Little, but so sweet!

Smoky moon

Recent wildfires have made our Seattle sky so smoky. The moon is almost full, and so red (even redder than this photo), high in the sky.

Rose with droplets

My new apricot Carding Mill rose, in the tiny drizzle of moisture we got last week.

Water droplets bead up on rose petals after a tiny bit of light rain

Fuzzy peach

Our very young peach tree gave us eight peaches! When’s the last time you saw peaches with fuzz on them? Commercial growers breed that out of them for market purposes, but the store ones sure don’t smell and taste like these.

Home grown peaches, from my Seattle garden

Sundowner rose

The roses in my front yard rosebed are looking phenomenal. I think they like the hazy (smoky!) sunshine we have had for the past few days. The lack of rain is making them that much more fragrant.

Smoky sky at the Cove

Seattle is getting a lot of smoke in the air from the fires near Vancouver, BC. Smoky skies can be pretty scenic, no?

Sequim scene

The town of Sequim (pronounced skwim!), WA has a lavender festival every year. They also have some wonderful street art.

Squak Mountain Nursery

A delightful nursery, new to me, in Issaquah, WA. Don’t we all need more hanging baskets?
