Air plant shadows

After a nice soak and shake, these mostly tillandsia air plants are almost dry enough to go back on my windowsill.

Sedum on a pumpkin

Some garden friends got together and we made a bunch of these autumn decor cuties with sedum from our gardens, craft supplies like hot glue, and mini pumpkins. Super easy, super fun. We didn’t scoop and plant with dirt, just glued them on. Maybe some of the sedums will make it enough to be rooted later. Or not.

Some moss, dried cones, and colorful sedum make a beautiful fall decor piece. Doesn’t it look like a flower?

Single rose

This is from a Crimson Glory rosebush I rooted from a cutting a few years ago. Here in Seattle we are expecting big rain, finally, so I picked this fall blossom.

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.

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.

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.

Lacy shadows

Late afternoon light on the patio. Such sharp shadows!

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.

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.
