Shiny cherries

We have a small cherry tree that has not had cherries for awhile, for different reasons. Hubby put a big piece of mosquito netting around one branch clipped close with clothespins, and we actually have some ripe red ones. So very shiny and sweet.

Fresh red cherries, so very shiny

Pink peony

The peonies are beginning to bloom! I am so excited. Even only halfway open the perfume is astonishing.

Carding Mill rose

One of the first roses to bloom this year in my garden is a David Austin rose, Carding Mill. The weather is still quite cool and rainy in Seattle, and my fifteen different rosebushes are taking their time to bloom.

Apricot colored, almost orange, Carding Mill rose with soft shadows and a raindrop or two.

Leaf shadow

Irises’ leaves are swords in the garden, and in the right light are a canvas.

Campanula ground cover

I love this plant, Campanula portenschlagiana or Wall Bellflower. It grows very well in my north facing entryway, under an overhang, so does fine in dry shade. The starry flowers and leaves are less than in inch across.

Blooming now in Seattle, purple campanula groundcover

Lilac bouquet

Cut lilacs from the garden don’t last long in bouquets, but that fragrance! Intense and gorgeous.

Grape hyacinths

Spring is farther along, and these grape hyacinths, or muscari, are in full display as they multiply easily in my Seattle garden.

See the tiny white fringed edges on each tiny flower?

Magnolia tree in bloom

A quick flash of sun against a dark rainy sky, that’s what I love about spring garden photos. The pink dogwood to the right is just in bud, but the Japanese magnolia is in full bloom.

Spring sunbreak

Sunbreak is a very Seattle word. Right now it’s pouring out, but an hour ago we saw the sun. For a minute.

Spring beauty in the sun, for a minute or two—wet streets and yellow forsythia.

Plum blossoms, with a little help

I have a plum tree with several grafted branches of different plums. I think this branch has golden shiro plums, and it blooms the earliest. Not too many pollinators are outside yet, and in previous years I haven’t gotten much fruit set. Today I went out there and used a soft art brush, maybe 4″ wide, to help out and make like a bee. I’ve done this before and it seems to make a difference.

Grape hyacinth buds

These blue-purple flowers grow so well in my Seattle garden, gently spreading every year. This stage is just the buds, getting started.
