Giant palm leaf

I got to visit Seattle’s beloved Volunteer Park Conservatory again after a very long absence. It was as thrilling as ever. This palm leaf overhead was at least five feet wide!

Hellebores in sunshine

A friend has a good hellebore collection in her charming garden. Even with the cold weather, they bloom so prettily in late winter and early spring.

Pink pieris

Also called Japanese andromeda, pieris is a stellar shrub that thrives in the Pacific Northwest. And they are fragrant! Little bells of wonderfulness.

Fish hook cactus flowers

Such a cute fish hook little cactus! Be careful, though. The white fluffy stuff is a kind of sunscreen and protects the cactus from wind and water evaporation, too.

Little pink flowers with yellow centers decorate this small fish hook cactus. Careful!

Happy Solstice!

Tonight is the year’s longest night in the Northern Hemisphere. In Seattle, today was only eight hours long. But now the light returns! Today is Winter, but we move onwards every day towards the Equinox, and Spring.

The shortest day of the year means the darkest times are behind us.

Thanksgiving cactus

You can tell by the points on the leaves that it’s actually a Thanksgiving cactus, not a Christmas cactus. It actually bloomed right on time this year. Make sure you take care of them more like regular houseplants, don’t let them roast in the sun or get super dry like regular desert cacti.

Thanksgiving cactus blooms in the late fall sunlight. Magenta with white flowers are so showy.

Air plant shadows

After a nice soak and shake, these mostly tillandsia air plants are almost dry enough to go back on my windowsill.

Sedum on a pumpkin

Some garden friends got together and we made a bunch of these autumn decor cuties with sedum from our gardens, craft supplies like hot glue, and mini pumpkins. Super easy, super fun. We didn’t scoop and plant with dirt, just glued them on. Maybe some of the sedums will make it enough to be rooted later. Or not.

Some moss, dried cones, and colorful sedum make a beautiful fall decor piece. Doesn’t it look like a flower?

Fall light in my living room

My living room jungle is coming alive with the lower light angling in from the southern exposure.
