Dappled path

In the Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Garden in Seattle, a brilliantly sun-dappled path invites a stroll.

Old trees overarch this path in the park on a sunny May day.

Bees love weigela

I learned that weigela (why-GHEEL-a) is related to honeysuckle. No wonder its sweet smell attracts bees!

Pink dogwood

This year the spring flowers seem even more spectacular than usual. Seattle does spring very well indeed.

Bleeding hearts

For a brief time it was sunny out. The garden is in bloom.

I heart bleeding hearts! Pink and white spring flowers in my yard.

Rose and orchid bouquet at NWFGS

I am still enjoying my photos from this spring’s Northwest Flower & Garden Show in Seattle. This stunner was on a tall glass pedestal.

Seahurst sunset

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

NWFGS bouquet

The Northwest Flower & Garden Show just ended in Seattle WA is a fabulous for the bouquets as well as the garden displays. This darling one has a plant, maybe a succulent, that I have never seen. Anyone know what that big flat green thing is?

Orchids, anthuriums, and other flowers and stems in this stunning display

Flower arrangement structure

Not sure what to call this blue-ribbon winning piece of floral art I saw yesterday at Seattle’s NW Flower & Garden Show (#nwfgs). Not a bouquet, not really an arrangement, more like a sculpture, it towered over onlookers. The complete, enormous arrangement:

By LaVassar Florists, Path to Mindfulness

Here are closeups of the top and bottom parts

Tiers of roses and ferns bedeck this flower sculpture

 

Enchanting tiny path with ferns
