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

Sweetpeas in the garden

This year my sweetpeas have done so well. I’ve learned that they really do need loose, fertile soil and a lot of sun. Even in this heatwave (Seattle is having a record-breaking five days over 90), they are blooming so beautifully. They seem to be most fragrant in the late afternoons and early evenings, after the sun has faded.

Big blueberries

I fertilized the blueberry bushes at the right time this spring, and I wasn’t stingy. They really liked it. These are almost the size of a quarter. We use mosquito netting and clothespins to close up the edges because the birds would eat them all. I think a pie is in our future.

Orange lilies

This is my backyard, with the kale flowering in the background. There are three different kind of orange lilies in this photo. Upper right is an oriental lily, lower left are Peruvian lilies, or alstroemeria, and in the center and lower right are daylilies.

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!

Leaf shadow

Irises’ leaves are swords in the garden, and in the right light are a canvas.

Campanula ground cover

I love this plant, Campanula portenschlagiana or Wall Bellflower. It grows very well in my north facing entryway, under an overhang, so does fine in dry shade. The starry flowers and leaves are less than in inch across.

Blooming now in Seattle, purple campanula groundcover

Lilac bouquet

Cut lilacs from the garden don’t last long in bouquets, but that fragrance! Intense and gorgeous.

Grape hyacinths

Spring is farther along, and these grape hyacinths, or muscari, are in full display as they multiply easily in my Seattle garden.

See the tiny white fringed edges on each tiny flower?
