As the day begins.

A bumble by a neighbor’s vine.

A wild sunflower lends a trunk.

Okra reaching for the sky.


Flowers from afar.

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.
