Let your flower grow and it'll bloom!!

Finally figured out a work-around to get Blogger working!! So, now I'm sharing all the things!!

A few years ago when we moved into our house, I noticed a weird lump in the yard (after all the snow melted). Upon further inspection, I saw that it was some kind of plant that had been mowed over. I pulled the grass away and tried to encourage it to grow. Turns out it a stunted little rose bush!!

It's struggled along for two years now, but this summer, it's decide it's ready to face the world!!! Just look at this baby now!! She persevered and look at the fruits of her labor!! (Yes, somehow I decided the rose bush is a she.)

How's that for delightful!!

My fur baby

One of life's greatest joys, and dare I say delights....a happy pup. She's an older girl now, but she's still happy and all around fantastic!
She's a lover and a sweetie pie and I just wanted to share her love with all of you.

Flowers in Alaska

Some places are replete with flowers, mostly tropical places I figure, but even places like Oregon or the Prairie at the right time of year bursts into bloom.
We in Alaska have very specific times of years for blooms. Each fall our landscapes burst into magenta pink fields cover in fireweed. This is not that time of year. (Thankfully! I'm still waiting for summer!)
This is the short window for our non-native Cherry trees!! They're so beautiful! And it makes me feel like I'm in DC or in Oregon! (I kind of like Oregon... Just a little)
So here's a little picture of the blooming cherry blossoms down the street to share my utter and complete delight with you!!
PS: For insight into just how delightful I find these trees, I once, in high school, had a friend shake a cherry tree for me while I danced in its falling petals. Yeah, I'm that kind of dweeb. It was soooo delightful though!!! You should totally try it if you're my kind of dweeb ;-)

Delight in the day!!
