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

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

Almost Spring

Almost but not quite Spring; just a few more days until the calendar tells us it’s official. My forsythia is getting ready.

Rainbow bouquet at NWFGS

We are certainly missing the annual huge Seattle Northwest Flower & Garden Show/Festival, held every year in early spring but sadly cancelled this year due to COVID-19. I am very excited about things getting back to normal and gatherings opening up, not yet, but soon. Wear your mask and get vaccinated!

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.

Backlit amaryllis

I’ve gotten a lot of pleasure out of the planted big amaryllis bulb I got in December. This is its third flower stalk!

Leaves in water

Autumn leaves floating in a plant saucer. We leave it out as a sort of birdbath for critters. In the spring it attracted a pair of mallard ducks!
