Pocket Jamie's Spring Garden Tour

If you are an OUTLANDER fan, you are undoubtedly familiar with "Pocket Jamie," the 8" photo of James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser as played by Sam Heughan. Inspired by fans around the world, who take photos of Pocket Jamie wherever they are, I decided to take my Jamie out to explore the garden.

Right away, Jamie started searching Rhododendron Hell, looking for wee Roger.

Then to get away from the "stink" of lavender (Lavandula sp.), Black Jack Randall's signature scent, Jamie jumped into the foliage of David's viburnum (Viburnum davidii).

Even though we were in Seattle, Jamie felt right at home marching across the heath (Erica sp.).

And a clump of bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) reminded him of being home in Scotland.

Finally, Jamie paused in a cloud of Forget-me nots (Myosotis sylvatica), no doubt thinking of his beloved Claire and her trip through the stones.

  1. Fun! Isn't that heath, though, which is winter-blooming, instead of heather, which is summer-blooming?
