Purple hellebore

Hellebore flowers bloom wonderfully early. They usually have very nodding flowers, but this one is face-up!

Free calendar

In honor of Inauguration Day yesterday and the big change it represents for the USA, I created a 2021 photo calendar of beautiful bouquets, all taken over the last few years at Seattle’s NW Flower & Garden Festival (formerly the NW Flower & Garden Show). #NWFGS #NWFGF You are welcome to download and share this Bouquets 2021 Calendar.

If you print it out, I suggest at perhaps at 80% size (for even borders), centered on the page, printing on only ONE side of the page—a little craft project for you. Enjoy!

In the comments, I’d love to know your favorite photo page.

Spring flowers in containers

These lovely spring flowers were in a display at Wave Hill NY one March day a few years ago. Wouldn’t you love these on your front step?

Italian prune plums

This is the third box of plums so far, from such a little tree! My neighbor refused an offer of some, saying they are the dandelions of fruit, that he grew up with a couple of trees of them, and was set for life. It made me laugh, but more for me.

Hardy fuchsias, just watered

Trying to get my garden well watered ahead of a big heat wave coming up. These small flowered hardy fuchsias bloom so well in the late summer garden.

Hardy fuchsias actually like quite a bit of sun, unlike the other, tender kinds

Rainy rosebud

Seattle certainly has been having a cool and rainy spring and summer, so far. The way roses look after a light rain, however, is priceless.

Jupiter’s beard in the garden

Jupiter’s beard (Centranthus ruber or red valerian), is very tough. I first saw this tall red flower growing out of a sheer rock face in N. California at the Waldo Grade. I figured, that’s one tough plant, so it’s either easy or invasive to grow. So far, nicely well behaved in my Seattle garden.

Fritillaria or checkered tulips

These are not really tulips but bulbs in the lily family, and first appeared in the 1500s. I remember seeing them in old Dutch still lifes. They come back every year in my garden in Seattle.

Grape hyacinths

Also called muscari, these darling little bell-shaped flowers are a favorite early spring flower, even though they have no fragrance. See my pink magnolia in the background, almost blooming? Spring is truly here.

Pretty blue-purple bulbs of grape hyacinth come up every spring

Spring crocus

It’s a special bonus when the time change day is sunny, especially in Seattle. This little crocus and its friend greeted me, all wet from the rain just earlier.

Green lasers

The last Lusio illumination art show at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, was so amazing, lighting all the tropical plants and the 1912 historic building in great washes of color. So many talented light artists.

Illuminated mushrooms light art

At Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, there have been some fabulous Lusio light art, music and dancing fundraisers, and the last one this year is coming up on Saturday, October 19. Here’s a photo from the one in January. So much fun!
