Anchorage has a very small botanical garden that has an assortment
of perennials, herbs, and natural plants to the area.
Today it also had thousands of mosquitoes lurking in wait for me.
The mosquitoes were relentless and made my relaxing walk turn
into a cross country run.
I took a lot more photos, but only had time to download these.
So many bugs....I'm still itching and scratching as I write this blog!
I"ll go again and take more photos, but only when we have a good strong wind!
As you can see the ferns are just starting to uncurl and the
bulbs are in their full glory.
They will only last for another week then they will be spent.
The colors were beautiful. The garden has a lot of natural vegetation surrounding
it. I will return and share more photos with you.
I'm going to go more prepared next time with both bug spray and bear spray in hand.
Last year they had to close this garden for several weeks due
to bear encounters.
I'm thinking the bugs may be even worse!
