Double Delight roses

These are some of my very favorite roses, with their sweet and spicy scent. You can see the color varies from bloom to bloom.

Brilliantly colored Double Delight roses live up to their name

Late hostas

In a local Seattle park, I saw a different kind of hosta that’s only starting to bloom right now in mid-August, much later than mine at home nearby. The starry white flowers had a sweet fragrance.

White flowers and unopened buds grace this sweet smelling hosta

Flower basket display

At the incredible Bayview Nursery in Whidbey Island, WA, the combination of horticultural skill AND beautiful, artful display came together brilliantly in this tall raised basket of starry petunias.

Grape hyacinths

Spring is farther along, and these grape hyacinths, or muscari, are in full display as they multiply easily in my Seattle garden.

See the tiny white fringed edges on each tiny flower?

Magnolia tree in bloom

A quick flash of sun against a dark rainy sky, that’s what I love about spring garden photos. The pink dogwood to the right is just in bud, but the Japanese magnolia is in full bloom.

Plum blossoms, with a little help

I have a plum tree with several grafted branches of different plums. I think this branch has golden shiro plums, and it blooms the earliest. Not too many pollinators are outside yet, and in previous years I haven’t gotten much fruit set. Today I went out there and used a soft art brush, maybe 4″ wide, to help out and make like a bee. I’ve done this before and it seems to make a difference.
