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.

Home-grown peaches

Our young ‘Frost’ peach tree is about three years old. It doesn’t get peach-leaf curl and has such fragrant, sweet yellow fruit, even ripening in Seattle’s short summers. Time for a cobbler!

Joyce General Store

A family trip to the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington included this lovely jaunt to Joyce, WA. The blackberry pie available in the cafe across the street was truly wonderful.

Perfect vacation browse in this old-time general store and post office

Flower border

Always so challenging to get the flower border to bloom in concert, right? Even though the light is overcast, the flowers are cooperating, sort of.

Seahurst sunset

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

Seattle skyline

Here’s a view of Seattle you won’t see for very much longer, taken November 2016. Note the Great Wheel, the construction cranes, the Space Needle, and the Viaduct roadway, soon to be torn down.
