Jade vine

Blooming at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, Strongylodon macrobotrys, or jade vine. The spent flowers fall still looking perfect, but unreal. Below the three fallen flowers is the plant as it grows. Isn’t that color like nothing you’ve ever seen? So graceful. LATER NOTE: This plant is blooming for the first time in 20 years!

Short break

Hello, dear blog readers. Various technical difficulties including changing web hosts are creating a break in my usual happy blogging. But never fear, not forever. Another week or so and we’ll be back. Here’s a pretty picture of my favorite place, Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, with this year’s version of its lovely fall display on a dark day.

Sunset at the Conservatory

It’s been a Volunteer Park Conservatory kind of week. Still waiting for the Corpse Lily (“Dougsley”) to bloom and emit its stench. In the meantime, here’s a view of the sunset through the Bromeliad house.
