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.

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.

Bleeding hearts

For a brief time it was sunny out. The garden is in bloom.

I heart bleeding hearts! Pink and white spring flowers in my yard.

Amaryllis with seeds

My windowsill Minerva amaryllis bloomed earlier. Now a second bloom is happening, and the first bloom actually set seed! Below is a view of the dark brown seed and a second, unripe pod behind it.

Haemanthus albiflos

I call this the Dr. Seuss plant because it looks so wacky. Checking google images, I see it is sometimes called paintbrush lily. The flower is about 1.5 or 2 inches. It is a bulb related to amaryllis. Notice the tiny leaves in the dirt. Last year it set a few seeds, and I got one to grow!

Daytime Christmas tree

Our Christmas Eve day tree. I like how it looks in the daytime almost as much as the nighttime.

Santa looks out over our Xmas tree and the plants

Frosty roadside

There was some very cold weather in the mornings last week.
