Peace roses backlit

Finally spent a little time cleaning up the rose bed. I get to be out there among them, admiring them, and they get all tidied up. My favorite time of day, too.

Brown Cow

Out in the countryside, in Lewis County, WA, this lovely bovine posed for a photo. Mooooooo.

Double Delight roses

These are some of my very favorite roses, with their sweet and spicy scent. You can see the color varies from bloom to bloom.

Brilliantly colored Double Delight roses live up to their name

Early girl tomatoes

This year is amazing and we are only getting started. This is about 3 pounds of Early Girl tomatoes, with the window reflecting on the shiny surface.

Tomato harvest with Sungolds

This must be a good ten pounds of tomatoes. They are pulling over the trellis with their abundance. Time for some mozzarella and basil for the best caprese salad. Bonus macro shot below!

Late hostas

In a local Seattle park, I saw a different kind of hosta that’s only starting to bloom right now in mid-August, much later than mine at home nearby. The starry white flowers had a sweet fragrance.

White flowers and unopened buds grace this sweet smelling hosta

Hydrangea tiny flowers

I love these tiny, lacy flowers within the flowers, within the flowers! that some hydrangeas have. With our acidic soils here in the Pacific Northwest, they are certainly blue!

So many blueberries

I guess the fertilizing and compost I added at the right time, plus the fact that the bushes are over a dozen years old, had something to do with the incredible blueberry harvest this year. YUM. The pie was the best ever.

Sweet blueberries, ready for a pie

Lavender Grosso

I am lucky enough to have surprisingly good conditions for growing lavender. Most of it is pretty much spent at this time of year, but the lavender grosso blooms latest and is still nice to pick and dry. Intensely fragrant, it’s good in little organza bags in your closet to repel moths. But maybe I should make a wreath?

Just harvested lavender grosso, ready to dry for sachet or cooking.

Stargazer lilies

The deeply colored stargazers look good this year, with the red and orange daylilies as a backdrop.

Cherry tree in sunlight

The recent warm weather in Seattle has been beautiful and sunny, true summertime for me.
