Heavily Laden

Oh how beautiful, I just hope the wind stays away.  Wishful thinking though, we do live in a wind tunnel.

Still Snowing

We got snow and it is still coming down.  So far about 6″.

Warm October

No snow yet, very warm temperatures.  Unusual for late October in Alaska.

Fall is in the Air

The beginning of crisp, clear days and fall colors.  I love this time of year.  It has stayed very warm, only one morning below freezing so far.  Otherwise the temperatures are in the 40’s in the morning and 60’s during the day.  An Indian Summer for sure!

Yellow and Green

I love the beauty of the changing seasons.

Path to the Chair

The colors are slowly changing and this is a perfect spot to sit to admire the beauty of the coming Fall.

Mini Blue Poppies

As I was cutting back the perennials for winter I discovered a mass of tiny Himalayan Blue Poppies growing underneath. It is going to freeze any night now, so these guys don’t have a chance.

Lettuce Towers

My lettuce is growing into towers, it still tastes good.

Garden Tomatoes

I also tried to grow tomatoes outdoors (I don’t have a green house). We have lots of these little babies, most are still green except for these.

Garden Corn

I tried corn this year, so far we have two small ones. I wonder how they will taste?

Freshly Mowed

I love the look and smell of freshly mowed grass.

Nasties and Geraniums

My nasturtiums still haven’t bloomed, frost is just around the corner. Don’t know why they haven’t bloomed?

And it begins…..

The trees are beginning to turn gold, where did summer go? Five days of rain in the forecast.

Asiatic Lilies

The Asiatic Lilies are in full bloom right now in the perennial garden along the front porch. So beautiful!

Perennial Garden

Asiatic Lilies and Himalayan Blue Poppies in full bloom right now in the perennial garden along the front porch. The garden is alive in color!

Scorched Hansa Rugosa

We had a pretty good heat wave last week and as a result my Roses suffered from lack of water. Generally the lawn sprinklers get the roses, but one tall rosebush blocked the water from the others. So we cut back the dead branches and leaves and watered heavily, I know they will survive but […]

Vege Garden 2018

We are trying some new plants this year, outdoor tomatoes and corn. Can’t wait. We are already having salads from the lettuce, I’m growing four kinds.

West End Ice

The Spring winds are melting the ice on our lake, and has blown it to the west end. When the wind changes it often piles up in our cove.

Borough dumped gravel on my lawn

I asked the Borough to send someone with a rake, shovel and wheelbarrow to clean up this mess, but so far nothing. They say that this is the right-of-way and they can do anything the want with it. I’m sure they are right, but show a little respect or courtesy. There is a vacant lot […]

Big Snow

The other day we had a big dump of snow, and more is on the way for the next five days.
