Pigtail anthurium

Here’s a tropical plant you don’t see that much, courtesy the fabulous collection at the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle, WA.

Red pigtail anthuriums. So curly!

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.

Fuzzy peaches

Homegrown peaches may be fuzzy, but the ineffable sweet perfume of them…

I think this is a Frost peach tree. It doesn’t get leaf curl and is producing sweet peaches in Seattle

Tomato harvest

I fertilized my tomatoes a bit better this year, and they show it. Sweet Sungold cherry tomatoes, with Early Girls and some San Marzano romas. I love the little green hats they wear that show how very fresh they are.

Red and orange tomatoes in my backyard harvest at the beginning of August. A warm summer in Seattle!

McCaw Hall wall

These metallic and gleaming color fields are so very beautiful to me. And padded! We went to see the ballet and this was a real bonus.
