Foxglove dots

I love foxgloves, such a good garden flower in my Seattle yard. Reseeds but you can move the little new plants easily, and they’ll bloom next year. Tall and elegant, their dots just float my boat.

Pretty dots or spots decorate these mauve foxglove flowers

Shiny red cherries

Just picked, from our dwarf, five-graft cherry tree! It bore nothing last year, so this delicious first picking is especially welcome. Below the cherries you can see the netting with clothespins hubby put on the tree a week ago.

Sweet red cherries, maybe Bings? Picked the first week in June in my Seattle back yard.

Spring garden

Yesterday Seattle had just incredibly gorgeous weather: delightfully warm, sunny, and calm. Did I mention warm and sunny? It has been so very cold and gray this year, so I treasure these rare bursts of heaven. The irises are gearing up.

My garden and part of my neighbor’s. Bluebells and forget-me-nots, plus irises to come.

Pink pieris

Also called Japanese andromeda, pieris is a stellar shrub that thrives in the Pacific Northwest. And they are fragrant! Little bells of wonderfulness.

Daffodil bouquet

The weather may still be wintry here in Seattle this year, but those daffodils never cease to thrill.

Sun and warmth are promised!

Cactus flowers

This is what’s commonly called a Christmas cactus, but it’s really a Thanksgiving cactus, or schlumbergera truncata, not a regular cactus. This year, this one is acting more like a Valentine’s Day cactus! When growing them, treat them more like a regular houseplant and don’t let them get super dry, before you soak the soil.

Such showy, iridescent, magenta and white flowers, on this Thanksgiving cactus in bloom.

Fish hook cactus flowers

Such a cute fish hook little cactus! Be careful, though. The white fluffy stuff is a kind of sunscreen and protects the cactus from wind and water evaporation, too.

Little pink flowers with yellow centers decorate this small fish hook cactus. Careful!

Purple hellebore macro

I love flowers that bloom in wintertime. The weather is still very cold and gray in the Seattle area, but the hellebores are being beautiful for us, already.

White amaryllis

A new kind of decor bulb for me, an amaryllis in a wax jacket, all ready to go. No planting, no watering, all inside the bulb! How magical is that? We chose a large bulb and were rewarded with two flower stems.

Christmas ficus tree

No room this year for a regular Christmas tree, but it looks quite festive anyway, don’t you think?
