The last leaves fall

Just a day or so ago the rain and wind picked up and the leaves began to fall in earnest. The next day they were all gone.

The very last leaves fly from the trees in my front yard

Rain coming

Ooooh, that was one dark sky! Sunny, windy, but not yet rainy. I did no photo adjustment to speak of, either; this image is very faithful to that vista. But just for fun, put “rain coming” in the search bar and see if you like those any.

November rain finally coming, in Seattle, Washington

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.

Old cedar tree

This cedar tree in my back yard looks like a regular-sized tree, until you realize the fence is six feet tall and the bench is a regular garden bench. Our guess is that the tree is maybe 300 years old. It is getting ready to drop some needles like it does every fall. It is waiting for rain, like we all are in Western Washington.

Very old cedar tree dwarfs the bench below it.

Magnolia tree in bloom

A quick flash of sun against a dark rainy sky, that’s what I love about spring garden photos. The pink dogwood to the right is just in bud, but the Japanese magnolia is in full bloom.

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.

Port Ludlow view

Our little getaway to Port Ludlow WA last week had mostly sunny weather, but even the gray skies were scenic in this view of Puget Sound.

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.

Three kinds of clouds

Wonderful sunny weather yesterday, with fast-changing patterns and layers of clouds in the sky.

Different cloud forms adorn the sunny sky, with some faint rainbow lights in the mist

Perennial sunflowers in the wind

Before the rain there were some winds. These pretty, late-summer perennial sunflowers were loving it.

Roses in a bucket

Yesterday I picked all the open roses ahead of the big rain expected tonight. When I cut roses I always bring a clean bucket with a couple of inches of water into the rosebed. As soon as I cut a stem I put it in the water so it doesn’t dry and seal up. Then right before arranging I cut the stems again while each stem is in a bowl of water in the sink, at a deep slant. It really helps them last longer in the bouquet. I love my roses.
