Seattle Marimba Quartet

Such a fine time at the Normandy Park (WA) Cove on Friday. These guys are so talented. Here’s just a bit of one of their pieces.

 

Here’s a shot of all four of them:

Tomato harvest

And don’t forget the lemon cucumbers, two kinds of string beans, or the truly sweet Italian plums. Late summer is the best!

Joyce General Store

A family trip to the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington included this lovely jaunt to Joyce, WA. The blackberry pie available in the cafe across the street was truly wonderful.

Perfect vacation browse in this old-time general store and post office

Flower border

Always so challenging to get the flower border to bloom in concert, right? Even though the light is overcast, the flowers are cooperating, sort of.

In praise of mothering

You don’t have to be a mother to mother someone. Extra warmth and kindness makes anyone feel loved.

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?

Orchid cactus

These giant orchid cactus now at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory are each as big as my hand!

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.

Flower arrangement structure

Not sure what to call this blue-ribbon winning piece of floral art I saw yesterday at Seattle’s NW Flower & Garden Show (#nwfgs). Not a bouquet, not really an arrangement, more like a sculpture, it towered over onlookers. The complete, enormous arrangement:

By LaVassar Florists, Path to Mindfulness

Here are closeups of the top and bottom parts

Tiers of roses and ferns bedeck this flower sculpture

 

Enchanting tiny path with ferns
