Almost Spring

Almost but not quite Spring; just a few more days until the calendar tells us it’s official. My forsythia is getting ready.

Rainbow bouquet at NWFGS

We are certainly missing the annual huge Seattle Northwest Flower & Garden Show/Festival, held every year in early spring but sadly cancelled this year due to COVID-19. I am very excited about things getting back to normal and gatherings opening up, not yet, but soon. Wear your mask and get vaccinated!

Spring flowers

The little mini-daffodils are up! Spring will definitely get here, but first Seattle is due for some cold and snow this week. I’ll keep you posted.

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?

Fall colors, at night.

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.
