Lavender in sunshine

These lavender plants were blooming in my garden in mid-June last year. Their scent is heaven to me.

Summer garden

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

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
