Focus on a DayLily

I don’t have any daylilies growing in my garden but perhaps I should. Though each individual blossom only lasts for a day, one established clump will provide many beautiful flowers for weeks. Daylilies are perennials but not a true lily and come in many…

Planting with Benji

Yesterday we visited Flower World to buy Benji a new bed. Or perhaps bath tub. I decided to borrow it to carry home the plants I bought while I was there. I bought the plants to fill up the bucket I got at a…

Flower of the Day – Clematis

Every May she wakes up in the garden, climbing, determined and exuberant, making everything beautiful in her path. For Cee’s Flower of the Day: Clematis. ~ Susanne

Ambling in the Rainy Day Garden

After being missing in action for most of April, the rain returned to the Pacific Northwest and was welcomed by all. I took a walk in the garden admiring the raindrops on the Lady’s Mantle the Chives and the budding Clematis. It won’t be…

Forest Flowers

Sometimes the loveliest flowers thrive in the unlikeliest places.  They don’t want our care – they prefer to live wild where rivers and forests remain intact. Yesterday I showed you a Trillium but here is another.   See how easily it grows from the messy…

Let’s Go Visit the Tulip Fields!

There’ll be no Tulip Festival this year and you already know why!  But that doesn’t prevent us from traveling back in time to last year’s festival in Washington’s Skagit Valley, where fortunately I took enough pictures at Roozengaarde to have plenty more to share…

Let’s Go Visit the Daffodils!

At least virtually!  It was a year ago that we went to see the daffodils in bloom in Skagit Valley, the first time ever, though I’ve lived in Washington my whole life! We made the journey 60 miles north of Seattle to Roozengaarde, which…

Ohi’a Lehua Hawaiian Flower

On our recent trip to Oahu I kept seeing this beautiful flower – endemic to Hawaii – and recognized as the Big Island’s official island flower. Even the name is lovely – Ohi’a Lehua – for Cee’s Flower of the Day. ~ Susanne

A Walk through Paradise – in Waimea Valley!

Need to get away?  Come with me for a walk in Waimea Valley! Tucked away on Oahu’s North Shore, across from Waimea Bay, you’ll find Waimea Valley,  a valley deeply rooted in Hawaiian history,  and Oahu’s last intact ahupua’a, a traditional Hawaiian land parcel…

FOTD – Azaleas Heralding Spring!

I thought we could use some early spring cheer and I found it in my backyard where the azaleas are starting to bloom. For Cee’s  Flower of the Day Photo Challenge ~ Susanne
