my poppy is just about to bloom. it's so exciting!! okay, so i'm easily thrilled. i planted them last year and this year they are growing in well. i just noticed today that the blue babies were about to be born. they are so pretty!! the rest of the garden is growing. especially the weeds. i know, weeds are just beautiful plants that happen to grow in the wrong place. they are very good at growing in my yard though. i hacked out about 300 dandelions today...only one came out with a 10 inch root attached so they'll be back. but no matter...my himalayan poppy is blooming!!
above is my fair city of anchorage...lots of green out there. i was out walking on the prospect heights trail system. rio is a bit sleepy today. guilt, guilt. tomorrow i'll have to leave her to guard the house and just take blossom out to hatchers pass.
blossom makes the most of the mud on the trail. that was as exciting as my day was. no moose sightings or bear. i did see some bear scat on the trail, but it's yesterdays poop so i wasn't too concerned. this evening was spent at work re-learning how to do basic life support. we made the most of our time there and had fun while learning.
