Solstice is always a bittersweet time for me. I LOVE the long Alaskan summer days, so naturally I love summer solstice. However, it makes me a little sad knowing the days will be getting shorter and the long dark winter is just around the corner. Seriously though, I can't think of the doom and gloom. Instead I am going to enjoy my pretties and give thanks for living in such an amazing and gorgeous state.
I took a walk around my yard late last night to enjoy the evening light and the
beauty surrounding me. Here are a few of the flowers I recently planted.
After all, what's life without color?
As I wandered around my yard, I stopped to enjoy the beautiful
view from my back deck while listening to the birds.
