Summer in Alaska

The most vibrant non-winter months in Alaska are June and July.  This is when the majority of the seasonal rebirth, growth, blossoming, and seeding of wildflowers culminates.  Among the earliest to bloom are chiming bells, the petals of which are most often an intense cerulean blue in color, or rarely pink.  While the blooming period for most Alaska wildflowers is short, the extended hours of sunlight on the longest days of the year make completing the annual cycle possible.
