Free calendar

In honor of Inauguration Day yesterday and the big change it represents for the USA, I created a 2021 photo calendar of beautiful bouquets, all taken over the last few years at Seattle’s NW Flower & Garden Festival (formerly the NW Flower & Garden Show). #NWFGS #NWFGF You are welcome to download and share this Bouquets 2021 Calendar.

If you print it out, I suggest at perhaps at 80% size (for even borders), centered on the page, printing on only ONE side of the page—a little craft project for you. Enjoy!

In the comments, I’d love to know your favorite photo page.

Backlit amaryllis

I’ve gotten a lot of pleasure out of the planted big amaryllis bulb I got in December. This is its third flower stalk!

Fall color at the peak

Autumn leaves have their own timetable. This from a couple of weeks ago, now all gone. The peak!

Red, orange and yellow, with blue skies and evergreens: the autumn rainbow

Leaves in water

Autumn leaves floating in a plant saucer. We leave it out as a sort of birdbath for critters. In the spring it attracted a pair of mallard ducks!

Anthurium flower

My pink anthurium has been blooming in the living room for weeks. Not technically a flower, it sure looks like one. Anthuriums are also called “sweetheart flower” and “little boy flower.” Hmmmm.

Photo tip: Shiny flowers are by far the easiest to photograph!

The moon in the trees

Autumn at night is beautiful, too. Can you see the dark side of the moon, softly glowing?

Yellow brugmansia

Like my last post, this photo was taken exactly ten years ago at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory. I hear the fragrance in the evenings was incredible.

These flowers are so elegant and graceful, but I found it surprisingly difficult to get a photo that showed it. I hope this one succeeded.

Fallen rose petal

Sometimes just one rose petal is enough to tell the story. Autumn is here.

A single rose petal falls on the table.

Three roses

While natural light is my fave, here’s some person-made light illuminating my bouquet of garden roses.

Two bouquets

Another rose photo of the flowers I had to pick before the big rains here in Seattle. A lot of rain ruins roses.

Cut your roses before a big rain

I have over a dozen rose bushes out front, and I love to look out at them, preferring to leave them where others can also enjoy them. But a big rain is predicted (2-3″ in a couple of days), and I know that it will just beat up and ruin all the opened ones, so what could I do? I had to pick them.
