Solstice houseplant

I have a kokedama houseplant that is my own little Stonehenge. Even though the window faces north, for a only few days at the Solstice, sunshine pours in.

This David Austin rose, named after the queen of butter, is worthy of her namesake. Blooming so bountifully!

Sundew, drosera capensis

I love my little sundew plant. It’s a carnivorous plant that eats fruit flies and soil gnats. A bog plant, so likes to sit in water in the outer pot, and you must never fertilize as the little bugs is all the food it wants. Can you see a speck or two of bugs it’s feasting on right now? When it gets warmer there will be more fruit flies for it.

Sundew drosera capensis very happy after being repotted.

Baby bird

My carport has at least one new occupant. Mama (or papa?) bird looked like a dark-eyed junco. Small bird with black head, brown on top of body. Hubby reached way up to snap this.

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.

Last of the viaduct in Seattle

Just a few weeks ago the last segments of Seattle’s viaduct were still standing. Now they are no more.

Tomato harvest

And don’t forget the lemon cucumbers, two kinds of string beans, or the truly sweet Italian plums. Late summer is the best!

Lavender Japanese anemone

If you have a roomy, shady spot for a Japanese anemone, it has such pretty flowers. I love flowers that come back every year.

Home-grown peaches

Our young ‘Frost’ peach tree is about three years old. It doesn’t get peach-leaf curl and has such fragrant, sweet yellow fruit, even ripening in Seattle’s short summers. Time for a cobbler!

Driftwood at Elwha beach

Visiting the mouth of the Elwha River in Washington with my family, where the dam removal four years ago has made huge differences to the ecosystem already, we were curious about some  driftwood creations on the beach.

What’s in there?
