Mysterious daffodils

Yesterday at Seattle’s Northwest Flower & Garden Festival I did enjoy the forced spring bulbs, especially this uplit and almost spooky daffodil.

Mysterious lighting for this harbinger of spring, the daffodil.

Pink and white Thanksgiving cactus

This little darling always blooms at Halloween rather than wait for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving cactus plants have the pointy upper points on their leaves or clades. Here it is on a beautiful sunny day we had recently. In Seattle we cherish sunny days so much.

The magenta-pink-and-white flowers on this Thanksgiving cactus are so showy!

Ferns on mossy trees

I find these ferns enchanting. After a beautiful and very dry summer, it rained in the early fall a couple of good inches, just enough to get things going in the woods.

Fall forest

We’ve been walking in the woods, just a bit, but it’s wonderful and makes me happy. The forest is my happy place.

Ferny, mossy log

We have been taking mini-hikes in a wooded park near me in Seahurst Park in Burien, WA. Today it was raining quite hard. Can you tell this is in the Pacific Northwest?

Parking lot shadows

I’ve discovered a park with hiking trails near me—Seahurst Park in Burien, WA. I am so pleased to be able to take advantage of them, since I am more mobile than I have been for quite awhile. Five weeks after my first try here, I see a lot of improvement!

Forest path

This photo means a lot to me. My health was kind of iffy for a long while, but now I am able to take a short mini-hike in the woods. I have missed this so very much.

Perfection and imperfection

The beautiful calla lilies are beginning to bloom. Something took a bite out of that leaf!

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.

Hellebores in sunshine

A friend has a good hellebore collection in her charming garden. Even with the cold weather, they bloom so prettily in late winter and early spring.

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.
