As we hit June, more and more flowers are opening for their summer, above ground vacation.
The forget-me-not seems the perfect flower to start with as we remember our friends from last summer. And it's the state flower. Maybe we should send some of these to our Republican legislators to remind them that Alaskans are waiting for them to not just cut the budget, but to recognize that we're adults who are willing to pay our fair share to balance the budget.
Some big pumpkin colored lilies.
And, of course, the wild iris.
And some daisy too.
And finally, not a flower, but Campbell Creek, as I came back from some errands on the bike trail. One of the reasons I live here - this wonderful wild creek meandering through the middle of Anchorage. Although we're very near the Seward Highway, we're also in this seemingly wild spot.
