Some eye candy from the gardens. Please enjoy!
Columbine (rock garden variety 6 inch tall plant. Bloom 1")
Aquilegia flabellata? (not sure if this is right and if you can help me verify please chime in :-)
Closeup Beautiful Jacob's Ladder
4 inch tall rock garden Iris (sorry can't remember actual name)
Fragrant Crab Apple (genus/species unknown)
at Palmer City Hall across from 1st Nat'l Bank on Cobb St.
If you live near, go see it and smell it; it's a wonderful tree and the only one of it's kind in all of Palmer and Wasilla. Smells like spiced apples and has so many blooms that you can't see the tree for the blooms! Full branch view of the tree below this photo.
Net Leaf Willow (ground hugging alpine plant, leaves 3/4 inch long)
