Pink trees in Seattle

We were downtown Seattle for my birthday and I was so happy to see this street scene filled with puffy pink trees!

Happy 10th blogoversary to me!

Believe it or not, I’ve been posting my top fave photos on this blog for TEN YEARS! In honor of the occasion, I think I’ll post a photo of me, which I never do, taken by a friend on my recent trip to San Miguel.

Thank you, dear reader, for your friendly visits, and especially your comments. Right this minute, there are 24,319 comments in the blog. And not one comment—not even one!—has ever been anything but kind, sometimes insightful, and occasionally even admiring. What a different world from some other online spaces. Thank you all. Here’s to another ten years.

Me in Mexico in February.

Aztec dancers

Got back recently from a trip to San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. My sister had a big party. There were dancers! Have you ever seen costumes anything like this?

Here is a short clip of them in action

Enjoy!

Orchid bouquet

You don’t often see a bouquet of orchids. That was a very fine year for bouquets at the NW Flower & Garden Show in 2012.

Red calla lilies and yellow ball flowers

One of my favorite images from the NW Flower & Garden Show (#NWFGS) is this bouquet of deep red and yellow callas, with some kind of ball flower inserted into each one. Over a cloud of pale green hydrangeas, naturally.

This just in! These ball flowers are Craspedia (Drumstick Flower)! You can buy seeds!
