Flowers in Fairbanks Alaska

 The campus of UAF (University at Fairbanks) has such beautiful flowers. They get more heat there than in Homer. Below is Ingrid on campus at the museum.

 The following are at the motel where we stayed. 
Large dahlias near the gazebo at the motel.

 Above is the Cookie Jar Restaurant at Fairbanks a row of marigolds and nasturtiums.
These are from my garden a really pretty colored lily I love surrounded by Forget me nots.

Beautiful flowers. Did you have fun tasking your grandson to college? So nice that you could do it.

I am so sorry I missed your anniversary post. Happy 50.....good for you. I LOVE the photos. What a handsome group you are, boys included.

The Cookie Jar is the name of a restaurant? Oh, golly, I would never want to come out!

Nan, I've been reading back on your post. I have been so absent but summer has been short lived and calling my name.

I'm so happy for the two of you arriving at 50 years. That is really great and yes, commitment is the key. We will celebrate 21 years on Sept. 7th.

My little Misha is not doing well. I've been with her in the chair for hours on end giving love and care and compassion. I pray it's not her time to leave me but I know she is just on lend to me. I know you have been through this so wanted to share with you.

Thanks for always being my friend.

Very pretty flowers......I love those dinner plate sized Dahlia's...wow. Your lilies are just a gorgeous color, too. Everything is dead and dried out here until it starts cooling down, which should be soon since it's almost fall.

Hugs,
Meri

I hope you're enjoying your stay here in Fairbanks! The weather has been pretty nice these last couple days. I hope you tried some of the sweets at the Cookie Jar. They sure are yummy! I'd also suggest the Pump House if you need a place for dinner one evening. We really like their atmosphere and menu.

The lilies, nasturtiums and marigolds you show here are some of my favorite flowers. Hello to you from California.
Congratulations on your anniversary; my husband and I will celebrate 40 years later this year. 50 is an exciting achievement.

Gorgeous flowers Nan. I love those lilies--they look like some we got from a friend of Jack's this year. Unfortunately it seems that there are some deer that seem to like them too and ever though we're not out in the country, they have eaten the blooms. We still have a couple that haven't opened yet and Jack got something that is supposed to keep them from eating them so we'll see if it works or not. They told us that it's actually something to "train" the deer to stay away from them and won't harm the deer or anything else. We lost all our tomatoes to the deer last year too. We've seen more deer in the park and on the lawn of the nearby middle school than anywhere else in the last few years.

Wishing you a lovely weekend, my friend!

You know I just don't have the garden for a dahlia. You have to dig them in and then dig them out but the varieties these days are unbelievably beautiful. What a great time to visit when all the flowers where in bloom. Smiles...Renee
