Although my cold lingers and we both feel worn out, mom and I are still getting around to see the sights.

  1. Does bugbane really repel bugs? Great macros.

  2. The vista’s and photo’s are stunning. It is amazing how a place that is so unforgiving and freezing in winter can be so beautiful in summer. Does it snow less in Anchorage? The flowers are beautiful. I would think their growing period is very short. In any event you have captured the beauty of Alaska very well. Thanks for the view. :o)

  3. Beautiful shots as always Patti but those taken from the mountain above Eagle River are just amazing,

  4. I love photo-stories. Long-range or close-up, yours never disappoint, Patti. Thank you!

  5. The Eagle river vantage point is beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

    • Thanks and you are so welcome. When I showed mom the close up of the little island in Fire Lake, she asked where it was. Uh, about 90 seconds before your driveway, turn left πŸ™‚ I think it was seeing that view of it that threw her off? She used to walk Sophie down by the lake. xo

  6. So aware of your silence for over a month, Patti. I hope you’re OK and simply needed a retreat. Sending love.

    • Thank you, Elaine. Just in hermit mode. Hope to be back to the world soon. So proud of you and your publishing journey! Love and warm hugs, P

      • Glad to hear it, Patti. I was fretting about you a little. Hermit mode sounds appealing to me right now–but I knew I’d have to step out into the world for this book.

  7. Beautiful my dear!! As usual a glorious moment for me to take a peek into your Northwestern paradise!! Sharing now; btw~ enjoy your private time!!! Sounds glorious πŸ˜‰ xoxo ❀
