First Forget me not

Spring and summer are in full swing here in Alaska. Although both seasons are short lived here, we enjoy the sweetness of the seasons as fully as possible.

I wanted to share with your the first forget me not to open in my gardens. The forget me not is the state flower of Alaska. And as many state flowers is protected and grows wild in the state.

The forget me not is a very small very light blue with a yellow center. It is sentimental in reminding one of fond memories of the past. And at the same time brightly looking at the present.

As our daylight hours increase this season there will be time to enjoy the midnight sun here. Yes, it is daylight here at midnight in the summer. Once again I plan to enjoy daylight at midnight. It really is quite enchanting.
