We went to Juneau in July to visit DH’s best friend. A day out to see beautiful Tracy Arm (14 hours on a boat but we got to see whales and glaciers and seals, oh my!) and the Peanut was a champ. A day of hiking abandoned mining towns, taking a tram to a mountain top, hiking said mountain top, and then a day where DH went fishing and the little one and I traipsed about downtown Juneau to pick up some gifts, take in a berry crepe, and see the sights of a cutesy downtown. Juneau has some lovely flora in July…
Does anyone know the name of the lovely rosy orange flowers above?
Or the funny pink ones?
That also come in purple.
Any guesses on the name of the fuzzy white ones?
These look like strawflowers to me, unless strawflowers have a more appropriate name…
So cheerful for being upside down.
Fuzzy white looks like a celosia…
You must be having a blast with your new family addition and new home!:-) It is such a fun time having small kids in the home + you will have a bity gardener soon:-)
She already has her own little trowel waiting for her 🙂
have to get one of those little gardener sets for the wee ones:-)
maybe a dahlia type?
the other one possibly an astilbe?
my best guess:-)
Definitely a dahlia type! Any guesses on the dahlia’s pot mate?
If it isn’t an astilbe, I still learned something (I’d never heard of an astilbe before.)
A lantana? The blooms look like a lantana- my best guess:-)
It was a welcome chorus of color!
It sounds like you had a great time on your trip. Astilbe is definitely what the fuzzy one is…I had white, pink and coral ones in my garden in Maine.
Thank you! I think they’re lovely.
