Roses before the storm

They predicted a big rainstorm so I went and picked most of the open roses that looked good. It’s raining hard now!

Fall color trees

Gotta love the colors of autumn.

Brilliant fall colors light up the October landscape even in the Pacific Northwest

Hailstorm

We were in Issaquah, WA, finishing up dinner after a day selling jewelry at Salmon Days, and the sky just opened. I have never seen a such hailstorm (with lightning! thunder!). The roar of the hail and rain, an inch of hail on the ground, and rivers of water and ice because the leaves and hail clogged all the drains. Expect the unexpected, I guess.

Lyndhurst Mansion

Visited the Gothic Revival Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown, NY, on the Hudson River. Naturally, I was particularly interested in the rose garden. Just this once, I am including FOUR photos in this post.

My new apricot Carding Mill rose, in the tiny drizzle of moisture we got last week.

Double Delight spray of roses

‘Double Delight’ rose has always been one of my top fave rosebushes. I think this is the third or fourth one that I’ve owned.

Fuzzy peach

Our very young peach tree gave us eight peaches! When’s the last time you saw peaches with fuzz on them? Commercial growers breed that out of them for market purposes, but the store ones sure don’t smell and taste like these.

Julia Child rose

My new buttery yellow ‘Julia Child’ rose is so happy where I planted her. New growth, buds, everything.

Volunteer Park Conservatory outside

Before the fires in British Columbia, Canada started making Seattle air so smoky (see post below), last week saw sunny skies in Seattle. Here is a photo of one of my favorite places in the world, Volunteer Park Conservatory, at the end of the day. The outside plantings this season are especially gorgeous, and these photos don’t do them justice. Love that purple and chartreuse! Bonus flowerbed close-up image below.

Smoky sky at the Cove

Seattle is getting a lot of smoke in the air from the fires near Vancouver, BC. Smoky skies can be pretty scenic, no?

String beans, three colors

I love string beans. They were my mom’s favorite vegetable, too. So fun to pick from the garden. Side note: When you cook the purple ones, they turn regular green and taste just like the green ones.

Purple, regular and yellow wax beans begin their summer abundance.
