Summer's Here, Really!

For Anchorage folks who think summer has forgotten about us, there are signs it's really here.

The iris have mostly bloomed and faded.

To be replaced by the daisies

And the dianthus.

And the ladies mantle.

But with the cool weather and grey skies, I can't blame anyone for mistaking the cottonwood seeds for snow. On the left is the whole cotton pod. On the right are the scattered seeds caught up against edge of the grass. In the middle is a clump of seeds.

  1. My blue bells have all gone to seed and this saddens me-- once they are gone the summer comes to a fast end for me. :(
