Aren’t these unusual hollyhocks pretty? Of course, the gardeners at the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle know what they are doing.

Red and pink rose garden

My roses in the front yard are loving this warm, dry weather, even though the sky is so hazy with smoke from the Canada wildfires.

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?

Lavender wreaths

My daughter is “crafty.” She saw all the lavender I have growing and decided we should make a wreath. She cut some willow for the base, tied it into a circle with jute twine, then added overlapping bunches of the fresh lavender while wrapping the twine. It worked! Here they are in my carport, drying.

Three or four kinds of fresh lavender, made into wreaths

Bouquet close up

I picked a bouquet of mostly red flowers today. ‘Double Delight’ rose, a very dark burgundy day lily, and a little ruby red ‘Lucifer’ crocosmia in my back yard, for you.

You can see the pollen on the day lily petals…

In front of my house, the rose garden is in its first flush. The red rose is ‘Proud Land’ and the lavender plants are blooming well nearby.

The roses of early summertime.
