Summer is Here!

Prickly rose blossoms near Anchorage, Alaska in early June.

When the winter season in the far north really passes, the transformation is incredible. Among the first signs of late spring/early summer are the wild rose blossoms whose delicate pick petals seem to show up everywhere. They don’t last long, but they are a testament to the wholesale rejuvenation of plant-life far and wide. Summers are short, but the days are long and nature moves at top speed to accomplish its purposes.
