Dappled path

In the Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Garden in Seattle, a brilliantly sun-dappled path invites a stroll.

Old trees overarch this path in the park on a sunny May day.

Bees love weigela

I learned that weigela (why-GHEEL-a) is related to honeysuckle. No wonder its sweet smell attracts bees!

In praise of mothering

You don’t have to be a mother to mother someone. Extra warmth and kindness makes anyone feel loved.

Mt. Baker Beach

Was lucky enough to have a little picnic the other day at a new place to me, Mt. Baker Beach. Here’s the pier:

And here’s the little park where we had a picnic. Isn’t that inviting?

Big leaves

This perennial plant with huge leaves emerging at the Seatac Highline Botanical Garden might be ‘Smaragd’ bronzeleaf rodgersia (R. podophylla ‘Smaragd’) because that’s what looks closest on google images. Let me know if that’s not right.

Toothed and notched huge leaves of bronzeleaf rodgersia. I think.

Pink dogwood

This year the spring flowers seem even more spectacular than usual. Seattle does spring very well indeed.
