It’s raining now, but thought you’d like to see the hydrangeas looking good in the sunlight not too long ago.

Volunteer Park Conservatory outside

Before the fires in British Columbia, Canada started making Seattle air so smoky (see post below), last week saw sunny skies in Seattle. Here is a photo of one of my favorite places in the world, Volunteer Park Conservatory, at the end of the day. The outside plantings this season are especially gorgeous, and these photos don’t do them justice. Love that purple and chartreuse! Bonus flowerbed close-up image below.

The east wing of the Conservatory, with some HUGE gunnera leaves outside.

Lavender bunches

Just got back from the Sequim Lavender Festival on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. Oh, such fun.

Fresh lavender in bunches at the Graysmarsh Farm booth next to my Love That Image Glass Tile Jewelry booth. They had yummy berries, too!
