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

Fuzzy peaches

Homegrown peaches may be fuzzy, but the ineffable sweet perfume of them…

I think this is a Frost peach tree. It doesn’t get leaf curl and is producing sweet peaches in Seattle

Backlit yellow rose

This yellow beauty is my new favorite rose, my David Austin rose Julia Child. Butter yellow, for sure!

Sunshine glows through the petals of this Julia Child rose, seen from the back. Even the sepals are graceful.
