Wildflowers in Kodiak

Flowers sure do bloom during summer in Alaska. Here are a few from our walk around the house on Sunday morning. One picture is of the bike path Carlos uses to go to work. Note the orchid we included. Yes, there is an orchid that grows wild here. People have tried to transplant them to the lower 48 but it doesn't grow there at all. It seems to like the cool weather.

In Fairbanks, people like to plant flowers in a way that they look very organized and beautiful. But in Kodiak, we like them to just sprout everywhere. 

We hope you enjoy them.

The bluebonnets are my favorite. But, of course, you knew that. :)
