Garden Musings

Last summer I posted pictures of these phenomenal Alaskan flowers
for 3 days and was told I overdid it. So, I am trying very hard to contain myself
and not post so many pics. But, it's hard...very hard.


Late summer is here in Fairbanks and the amazing flowers are wow-ing us!
The downtown flowers are stunning,

The hanging pots heavy and huge, some of them almost touching the ground,

Colors spectacular and vibrant.

UAF (Univ. of Alaska Fairbanks) has a garden near the campus
and we decided to visit it and enjoy some quiet time among its beauty.
Ponds, bridges, trees, benches and flowerbeds abound.

The delphinium were over 6 feet tall and toppling over from the recent rain.

But their colors were brilliant, even so.

The patches of mixed flowers were my favorite.
It was a lovely, peaceful time.
I wish you had been with us.
