If I were a cat

Winter sun goes deep into the room in Seattle on the last day of the year. So welcome! If I were a cat I know I’d be napping here.

Fear not!

“And the angel said unto them, ‘Fear not!'” This is one of my favorite quotes from the Bible. Especially good for this year, these times. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Flower balls at Longwood

A trip down memory lane, to the other side of the year, the other side of the country…these huge flower balls are marvels of fantasy as well as engineering and horticulture.

Houseplants at solstice

We had a sunbreak, a very Seattle term for a brief appearance of the sun. The plants adore the light, pouring all the way into the living room at this time of year. May you have the bliss of a winter sunbreak often, and may all your leaves be green.

Air plants!

An exciting thing happened. Someone sent me a gift of 11 air plants! I’ve kept some air plants alive for a few years so I’m pretty sure I know what to do with them, but I’m hoping these don’t need unusual care. What I know to do is soak them for half an hour once a week (upside down so their little butts are in the air), shake off excess water, and keep on a bright windowsill with lots of air circulation. Makes sense, right? Anyone out there know what kinds these are? I’ve included a picture with numbers to help you tell me what’s what if you know. Thanks in advance!

All probably some kind of tillandsias???

 

Know any names? Please post in comments. Thanks!

Perennial sunflowers in the wind

Before the rain there were some winds. These pretty, late-summer perennial sunflowers were loving it.

Late hydrangeas

When the petals of your hydrangea flowers get a little like crepe paper, they dry very well. Put in a vase with a half inch of water. By the time the water evaporates, the flowers will be dried enough to last and last.

Colors of mauve, purple and soft blue appear as the blue flowers mature and get ready to dry.

Roses in a bucket

Yesterday I picked all the open roses ahead of the big rain expected tonight. When I cut roses I always bring a clean bucket with a couple of inches of water into the rosebed. As soon as I cut a stem I put it in the water so it doesn’t dry and seal up. Then right before arranging I cut the stems again while each stem is in a bowl of water in the sink, at a deep slant. It really helps them last longer in the bouquet. I love my roses.

Early Girl tomato

I did a good job planting my Early Girls (and Sungolds) and they were watered well. So sweet!

Teensy cactus babies

I have a south window and this time of year in Seattle I start to get direct sun. Two small baby cactus plants went and had babies of their own!
