A relaxed kinda Memorial Day

Even the dragonflies were checking out the view on the deck!

Hmm, glacier dust anyone? Sigh.

Dixon was doing his sun-dog impersonation.

Not a bad view for lunch, huh?

Flowers are beginning to burst out.

Squirrely dropped in for a snack, too.

Apple blossoms! Did you know apple trees grow in Alaska? I didn't until relatively recently.

More pretties....

Wild roses, which grow everywhere! Love it!

Oh, I know what this one is! Must be cousins to my globe flowers in my front yard. Love these "pretty yellow flowers".

Spoon-flower, getting a nice start.

And, finally, made a stop at Aurora Cemetery here in Wasilla on the way home. This simple, stark photo kinda reminds me what it's all about.

Wednesday Odds'n'Ends

Squill, first flower of the season for me. But, hey, the columbine is trying!

Scenic Palmer

First, the not-so-scenic view along Palmer-Wasilla Hwy. today. Welcome to construction season, Alaska.

Most of the rest of these were taken at the pull-over along Glenn Hwy. just before the turn-off to the Musk Ox Farm (see those pix below), or just before, I guess, if you're coming from Tok.

It's a long way down...
