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!

String beans, three colors

I love string beans. They were my mom’s favorite vegetable, too. So fun to pick from the garden. Side note: When you cook the purple ones, they turn regular green and taste just like the green ones.

Purple, regular and yellow wax beans begin their summer abundance.

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…

Two apple trees

A couple of days ago, the two columnar apple trees near my patio looked like this, not quite blooming. Wonder what two warm and sunny days will do?

Bluebells and forget-me-nots, a pruned grapevine, and two columnar apple trees almost in bloom. Scallions (green onions) blooming at lower left, and a multi-graft plum tree in the distance.

Tulip and bluebells

Tulips naturalize if conditions are just right. They don’t like any water in the summers. But bluebells bloom anywhere, and just at the same time. Good combo, yes?
