Cherry tree in sunlight

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

Wave clouds at Galaxy golf course

Hubby was golfing on our little Whidbey Island vacation and saw these wave clouds! And it was so scenic, as well!

Spring sunbreak

Sunbreak is a very Seattle word. Right now it’s pouring out, but an hour ago we saw the sun. For a minute.

Spring beauty in the sun, for a minute or two—wet streets and yellow forsythia.

Plum blossoms, with a little help

I have a plum tree with several grafted branches of different plums. I think this branch has golden shiro plums, and it blooms the earliest. Not too many pollinators are outside yet, and in previous years I haven’t gotten much fruit set. Today I went out there and used a soft art brush, maybe 4″ wide, to help out and make like a bee. I’ve done this before and it seems to make a difference.

Foggy winter morning

The fog was heavy, early this morning in my garden.

Winter scene in Purchase NY, guest image

A very fine winter scene of the melting snow by a relative who lives on the East Coast. I love this image!

Flower balls at Longwood

A trip down memory lane, to the other side of the year, the other side of the country…these huge flower balls are marvels of fantasy as well as engineering and horticulture.

Autumn color

I’ve been taking photos out my front window this whole season. Yesterday, just before a big rain started, it looked like this.

Spring lilacs and bluebells

My morning view of the front yard. Planting the bluebells only three years ago was a success! Soon they will fade but the roses and lavender will take over. If only the lilacs lasted longer.

Cotoneaster berries

The cotoneaster berries are super red this year. Birds and photographers love their winter redness. Note: this plant has an extremely weird pronunciation. You might think it was “cotton Easter,” but no. It’s actually pronounced cuh-tone-ee-AST-er. Isn’t that something?

Bunny in the garden

Oh they are cute, absolutely. As long as they stay with the fallen apples and leave my vegetables alone!
