Wax Begonia – Workhorse of the Garden

After yesterday’s rain I went for a walk in my garden and found wax begonias blooming heartily where I planted them earlier this year. I may have neglected them but they didn’t neglect me.

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”

Flower of the Day: Debutante Camelia

There never was a more fitting name for a flower than ‘debutante,’ one of the earliest camelias to bloom. I found her waiting next to a bench at Flower World and was enchanted by her pale pink ruffles and pearls. I should have brought… Continue Reading “Flower of the Day: Debutante Camelia”
