Jupiter’s beard in the garden

Jupiter’s beard (Centranthus ruber or red valerian), is very tough. I first saw this tall red flower growing out of a sheer rock face in N. California at the Waldo Grade. I figured, that’s one tough plant, so it’s either easy or invasive to grow. So far, nicely well behaved in my Seattle garden.

Magnolia springtime

I love this time of year. Seattle does Spring so very well. My magnolia tree is loving this week of sunshine.

Fritillaria or checkered tulips

These are not really tulips but bulbs in the lily family, and first appeared in the 1500s. I remember seeing them in old Dutch still lifes. They come back every year in my garden in Seattle.

Grape hyacinths

Also called muscari, these darling little bell-shaped flowers are a favorite early spring flower, even though they have no fragrance. See my pink magnolia in the background, almost blooming? Spring is truly here.

Pretty blue-purple bulbs of grape hyacinth come up every spring

Forsythia blooming

Happy Spring Equinox! We are blessed with sunny weather in Seattle this whole week. Don’t know why we don’t see more of these forsythias around Seattle but I love them.

Brilliant yellow and old-fashioned forsythia is the glory of springtime

Kitty in grass shadows

Oh, photo archives are a treasure. So many photos, and after a few years, some are completely new to me. I took that? Apparently I did, on a garden tour ten years ago. Here’s to July, and kitties, and sunshine!

Toe shadows

We had a sun break from a snow shower last week, and the sun is so low in Seattle at this time of year that it made fringes of shadows while I did yoga in the sunshine. But just for a minute.

Autumn leaf shadows

There was a brief bit of sun late in the day and it lit up an orange tree.

Reading chair with plants

I took the houseplants in and now the autumn sun comes in this window. My favorite place to read.
