Peace rose after rain

The Peace rose is among the first to bloom in my rose garden. So pretty after a bit of rain.

The Peace rose is a yellow rose with deep pink edges, and a very vigorous rose bush

Geranium bud

Sometimes the bud stage is my favorite. The sense of possibility!

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.

Double lilacs

Most lilac blossoms have only one row of petals. But this one has an abundance of everything lilac.

Soaking pea seeds

We’ve had three days of really nice weather—dry and not too cold. Time to start peas outside! I like to soak them for a few hours before they go in the ground. So exciting to be planting something for spring.

Free calendar

In honor of Inauguration Day yesterday and the big change it represents for the USA, I created a 2021 photo calendar of beautiful bouquets, all taken over the last few years at Seattle’s NW Flower & Garden Festival (formerly the NW Flower & Garden Show). #NWFGS #NWFGF You are welcome to download and share this Bouquets 2021 Calendar.

If you print it out, I suggest at perhaps at 80% size (for even borders), centered on the page, printing on only ONE side of the page—a little craft project for you. Enjoy!

In the comments, I’d love to know your favorite photo page.
