Purple prickly pear

At the Desert Garden in Phoenix, AZ, a new succulent to me, a purple opuntia or prickly pear.

Prickly pear cactus in Arizona, in tones of lavender or purple. See the heart-shaped paddles?

Polka dot table cloth

I got a new polka dot oilcloth tablecloth. It works with my houseplants, so I am happy. My chair on the left, near my pile of newspapers.

Sun shadows in the kitchen

I love a south-facing window as the sun gets lower in the sky. The plants love it, too!

November sunshine streams into my kitchen on a recent sunny day, lighting up the purple oxalis and other plants

Glowing cape

At last week’s last Lusio light art fundraiser at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, this person went all out with their glowy LED cape, perfect for the occasion.

Illuminated quilt art

These pieced fabric panels (not really quilts), lit from behind, glowed so beautifully at the recent Lusio Lights event at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory.

Venus fly trap light art

The Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle has been having some illumination art fundraisers. This is a lit-up carnivorous plant sculpture from last night’s Lusio Lights art event. You just don’t see something like this every day.

Large light art sculpture of a Venus fly trap. The light colors kept shifting.

Alstroemeria bouquet

A friend gave me a magnificent bouquet of Peruvian lilies, or alstroemeria. Each flower was at least 2″ or even 3″ wide (5-8 cm). I’ve never seen such an array of rainbow colors in this flower. See a close up in this post below.

Almost perfect cut flower (sadly no fragrance), Peruvian lilies make such a fine bouquet

Peruvian lily macro

Someone gave me a truly marvelous bouquet of alstroemeria, or Peruvian lily. I have no idea where she got such magnificent ones. This image is a real fave of mine, straight out of the camera…See above for a photo of the whole bouquet.
