Wedding flowers

I was at the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle when a wedding was winding up. The florist did a fine, fine job!

So many kinds of lovely flowers in this wedding arrangement.

Succulent rosettes

On my recent trip to Mexico, I saw some extremely pretty succulents in my sister’s garden. Don’t they look like roses?

Roses before the storm

They predicted a big rainstorm so I went and picked most of the open roses that looked good. It’s raining hard now!

Lyndhurst Mansion

Visited the Gothic Revival Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown, NY, on the Hudson River. Naturally, I was particularly interested in the rose garden. Just this once, I am including FOUR photos in this post.

Double Delight spray of roses

‘Double Delight’ rose has always been one of my top fave rosebushes. I think this is the third or fourth one that I’ve owned.

Red and pink rose garden

My roses in the front yard are loving this warm, dry weather, even though the sky is so hazy with smoke from the Canada wildfires.

Julia Child rose

My new buttery yellow ‘Julia Child’ rose is so happy where I planted her. New growth, buds, everything.

Sundowner rose

The roses in my front yard rosebed are looking phenomenal. I think they like the hazy (smoky!) sunshine we have had for the past few days. The lack of rain is making them that much more fragrant.

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…
