Indian Plum

I discovered a new shrub this spring – or should I say I discovered its name? I’d seen it many times on my walks in the woods, always stopping to admire its growth in the dead of winter and its blossoms in early spring.… Continue Reading “Indian Plum”

Daffodils of the Skagit Valley

On the sunniest day of the last week of winter I made the trek to the Skagit Valley and found the fields at Roozengaarde brilliant with daffodils. I excused my husband so he wouldn’t have to endure the waiting while I wandered around taking… Continue Reading “Daffodils of the Skagit Valley”

The Dahlias Stole the Show

In my last post I told you of our trip to Point Defiance – the zoo, aquarium and surprise at the rose garden. But of all the gardens at Point Defiance I think the Dahlia Garden stole the show. Sorry I couldn’t just pick… Continue Reading “The Dahlias Stole the Show”

Isn’t Orange Wonderful?

Yes it is! In fact it’s one of my favorite colors. So for Sunday Still’s Photo Challenge I thought I’d share some orange flowers beginning with the fragile yellows at one end of the spectrum and marching towards red at the other. And that’s… Continue Reading “Isn’t Orange Wonderful?”
