Fritillaria

These darling checkered tulips (not really, but that’s what they’re sometimes called) were enjoying a beam of sunlight at the recent NW Flower & Garden Show in Seattle, WA. #NWFGS

Fritillaria, or checkered tulip, can be seen in antique still-life paintings, and is easily grown in Pacific NW

Orange tulips

The NW Flower & Garden Show starts next week in Seattle. Even though the theatrical lighting can be very challenging for floral photography, there are still so many flower photo opportunities.

The fountain

A wonderful display garden at NW Flower & Garden Show in Seattle (#NWFGS) had a beautiful fountain inside an arched courtyard. The gentleman there told me it’s “la fuente” in Spanish. He said that in old Spanish, la fuente also means “the source.”

Pale pink, tones of yellow, so simple and yet so exquisite. Another beauty from Seattle’s Northwest Flower & Garden Show.
