Almost spring

Seattle’s weather has been colder and wetter than normal. Here is a plum tree in my back yard, trying so hard to bloom, taken on a rare break in the rain.

Snow on cedar tree

We have a huge cedar tree in out backyard. Here it is in the heavy, wet snow that fell, before it all started to melt. Bonus image below: our front yard. You can see that there is even snow accumulated on the power lines, but it was already starting to fall off.

Amaryllis bud

Sometimes the bud is almost more thrilling than the flower. The sense of possibilities!

Fall begins

In Seattle, it’s remarkable how close to the calendar the turn of the season feels. This week begins Fall, and sure enough, the trees are coloring up quite nicely.

Roof plants in San Miguel

Many of the roofs in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico have plants in pots at the roof’s edge over the street. I do wonder about earthquakes, if not high winds.
