Golden and red raspberries

We are growing golden raspberries along with the red ones. They are even sweeter and more delicate.

Lavender and bees

I just got a new camera, a Canon G9X Mark II. It’s been several years and I was overdue. Here is the first video I’ve shot with it.

Here’s a still shot. Pretty nice, don’t you think?

Peace rose after rain

The Peace rose is among the first to bloom in my rose garden. So pretty after a bit of rain.

The Peace rose is a yellow rose with deep pink edges, and a very vigorous rose bush

Geranium bud

Sometimes the bud stage is my favorite. The sense of possibility!

Double lilacs

Most lilac blossoms have only one row of petals. But this one has an abundance of everything lilac.

Snake’s head flower

I’ve always called these checkered tulips, which they are not; they are fritillaria. A very cute early spring bulb flower, just showing in my garden now. I was charmed to hear them called snake’s head flower, something new to me. The buds DO look like that, don’t they?

Almost looking fake, these fritillaria are also called snake’s heads.

Muscari buds

Sometimes the bud stage is as nice as the fully flowering one. The sense of promise! This patch of grape hyacinths or muscari is getting ready to bloom very soon.

Germinating peas

We’ve been having a cold and wet Spring in Seattle. Even though I soaked them for a few hours before planting, my SugarSnap peas took almost three weeks to germinate! But finally, they are showing (this photo taken a couple of days ago in a sunbreak). Above and to the right of the teensy shoots just breaking through the ground are some SugarSnap starts I happened to find for sale, so that’s going to make harvest longer. Spinach seeds just showing their true leaves to the left.

Peas begin to show above the surface of the soil. Can you see them?
