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.

Teensy cactus babies

I have a south window and this time of year in Seattle I start to get direct sun. Two small baby cactus plants went and had babies of their own!

Two flowerbeds

My backyard a couple of weeks ago in late July. Don’t the pointy iris leaves look good?

Deck flowers

My friend Cindy has the most incredible flowers. These were in flower boxes on her deck last month.

String bean leaves

One of my reasons for gardening is the perfect patterns.

Golden and red raspberries

We are growing golden raspberries along with the red ones. They are even sweeter and more delicate.

Julia Child rosebush

Happy Solstice! Here’s a portrait of sunshine. I planted this ‘Julia Child’ David Austin rosebush three years ago, maybe four. It’s on its own roots. I have never seen such a vigorous, floriferous rose. The Carding Mill I bought at the same time is less than one quarter the size. The only tiny complaint I have is that the flowers lose their exquisite, pale yellow petals very quickly after the roses are fully open.

Only a few years old, this Julia Child rosebush is the star of the bed

Pink honeysuckle

For some reason, our honeysuckle is loaded with blossoms this year. This plant is from a cutting I took several years ago from an unoccupied home’s yard. The plant was thriving in shade and clearly had not been watered in forever. Mine is planted on the north side of my house, but I find that it does seem to need regular watering. The scent at night wafting up to the windows is amazing.

Pink buds on this honeysuckle open to yellow, very fragrant flowers

Backlit irises

Glorious spring weather this weekend in Seattle. The red roses (‘Crimson Glory’?) are on a bush I rooted myself! Beyond the little plum tree, the rest of the yard is my lovely neighbor’s.
