Pink oxalis

Purple pansy

The slugs and snails have not given the pansies much peace, but what with the warmer, dryer weather and beer traps, I think there will be more coming in.

Leaf shadow

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

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.

Fish hook cactus

I love this little cutie, and it blooms in the spring for me, even though there’s not a whole lot of sun for it here in Seattle, even in my south window. But be careful! Each flower is about a centimeter across, less than half an inch. The hairy stuff helps protect it from sun and water evaporation.

Roses and orchids

Someone sent me the most wonderful flowers as a get-well bouquet. I am beyond thrilled. It will help speed recovery for sure!

Orchids and roses in a charming bouquet, for me!

Valentine roses

Hubby is a traditionalist and brings me red roses every year. I love them. And him.

A dozen long-stemmed red roses, yes please.

If I were a cat

Winter sun goes deep into the room in Seattle on the last day of the year. So welcome! If I were a cat I know I’d be napping here.

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.
