Drying hydrangeas

This is the perfect time to see if any of your hydrangeas are ripe for drying. The petals need to be crepe-y,  sort of wrinkled, but still have good color. I put them in an inch of water, at the most. When the water evaporates in a few days, the flowers should still look wonderful. Voila!

Clouds and moon

There were almost explosive cloud forms recently, with a crescent moon for decoration on the skyscape.

High, feathery clouds of ice crystals so scenic in the daytime summer sky

Rain coming

We are students of clouds and cloud cover in Seattle. It doesn’t actually rain that much, about the same as New York City per year, but we have more cloudy days than any other city, I’ve heard. So we look at the sky a lot to check if it’s clearing up. Or not. Loved these exciting, swirling clouds before some recent rain.

Orange daylilies

The good rain we’ve had this spring has been great for the garden. The back flowerbed hasn’t had much attention from me but the daylilies and rose campion are doing so well. Enjoy the glorious summer sunshine!

I love this time of year. Seattle does Spring so very well. My magnolia tree is loving this week of sunshine.

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.

Forsythia blooming

Happy Spring Equinox! We are blessed with sunny weather in Seattle this whole week. Don’t know why we don’t see more of these forsythias around Seattle but I love them.

Brilliant yellow and old-fashioned forsythia is the glory of springtime

January in California

Here’s a little video clip of a January trip to Sonoma County, CA a few years ago. Scenic barn! Live oak! Birdsong!

And a still from the same scene. I wish you a scenic 2020.

Connectivity

Is there anything more beautiful than a cloudless sunset sky? The softest lavender fading to golden brilliance.
