Rain coming

Finally the Seattle area got some rain last week. Here’s the sky in back of my house right before it got here.

Dark clouds move into a sunny sky ahead of some good rain

Houseplants in the living room

Like the kitchen shadows post below, I love bringing in the patio plants when the Seattle weather turns cold. On a sunny afternoon the feel in the room is glorious.

A south-facing window in Seattle is kind to houseplants in the winter time.

Sun shadows in the kitchen

I love a south-facing window as the sun gets lower in the sky. The plants love it, too!

November sunshine streams into my kitchen on a recent sunny day, lighting up the purple oxalis and other plants

Behind the Conservatory

I do post a lot of photos about Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, but here is a view that few are lucky enough to see. This glass structure is one of the support production greenhouses, seen on a sunny, early-fall afternoon last week. Volunteering has its perks!

Gray sky over the Conservatory

Rain was clearly on the way in this view of the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle from the back.

Almost looks like lightning, doesn’t it?

Magnolia blossom with bud

Just for fun, a photo from the other side of the year. Should be perfect for our friends down under…

Rose bouquet

Rain is predicted, so I went out and cut some roses.

I’m posting a second photo of this same bouquet from a different angle. Which do you prefer?

This is in honor of the 25,000th comment received on this blog, on the Cherry Tomatoes post below (thank you, Magical Mystery Teacher!). Every single comment I have ever received here has been kind and positive. What a fine group of people are photo-blog visitors!

Forest scene

Last week went camping in Gifford Pinchot National Forest in Washington, not too far from Mt. Rainier. This was the view from our campsite one morning.

Big Creek

We went camping. Even though the air was hazy with wildfire smoke, it was still beautiful out there.

Here’s a short video of the scene, from this view to the left:

Red sun

The air was awful in Seattle this week, due to wildfires in British Columbia and in Washington. This was the worst I’ve ever seen or felt it.

Alstroemeria bouquet

A friend gave me a magnificent bouquet of Peruvian lilies, or alstroemeria. Each flower was at least 2″ or even 3″ wide (5-8 cm). I’ve never seen such an array of rainbow colors in this flower. See a close up in this post below.

Almost perfect cut flower (sadly no fragrance), Peruvian lilies make such a fine bouquet
