Double primroses

We had a brief sunbreak yesterday (oh, the thrill of sunshine in Seattle!) and I found that some things were happening in the garden.

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.

Summer garden

It seems like the cold and rainy weather in Seattle will go on forever. But it won’t.

Cactus flower cake

At the recent NW Flower & Garden Show in Seattle, one display area had some incredible “cakes” decorated with flowers. I loved the colors on this one.

Fritillaria

These darling checkered tulips (not really, but that’s what they’re sometimes called) were enjoying a beam of sunlight at the recent NW Flower & Garden Show in Seattle, WA. #NWFGS

Fritillaria, or checkered tulip, can be seen in antique still-life paintings, and is easily grown in Pacific NW
