Seattle skyline

Here’s a view of Seattle you won’t see for very much longer, taken November 2016. Note the Great Wheel, the construction cranes, the Space Needle, and the Viaduct roadway, soon to be torn down.

Rain coming

Finally the Seattle area got some rain last week. Here’s the sky in back of my house right before it got here.

Dark clouds move into a sunny sky ahead of some good rain

Glowing cape

At last week’s last Lusio light art fundraiser at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, this person went all out with their glowy LED cape, perfect for the occasion.

Teensy orchids

I know I’ve been using such technical plant names, but I can never remember the real names. Anyway, this stalk that looks like fountain grass is really little bitty orchids! So saith the Volunteer Park Conservatory, and they should know.

Very tiny orchids, in front of frilly white cymbidium orchids, commonly used for corsages

Gray sky over the Conservatory

Rain was clearly on the way in this view of the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle from the back.

Almost looks like lightning, doesn’t it?

Alstroemeria bouquet

A friend gave me a magnificent bouquet of Peruvian lilies, or alstroemeria. Each flower was at least 2″ or even 3″ wide (5-8 cm). I’ve never seen such an array of rainbow colors in this flower. See a close up in this post below.

Almost perfect cut flower (sadly no fragrance), Peruvian lilies make such a fine bouquet

My friend Cindy is quite a gardener. Here is her front entryway.

Hanging baskets and pots of flowers adorn the front of this Bonney Lake, WA home.

This darling hydrangea was growing in shade near Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, perhaps being readied for display.
