Alaskan Wildflowers

In an attempt to cover up the ugly, used-to-be-landscaped flower bed next to our driveway, we planted some tiny little Alaskan wildflower seeds in June. Maybe it was the end of May. Some time around Memorial Day. While I planted all the flowers in boxes and pots around our house, the wildflowers were Scott's thing. Every time we come home from somewhere, he walks down to inspect them. And then accuses me of not caring about his flowers when I choose to walk straight into the house ha ha. Maybe almost in the way the dad on "A Christmas Story" loves that leg lamp. Anyway, I never thought they would grow. But alas, while 34 days of Alaskan rain has all but killed my pansies, marigolds, and geraniums, Scott's flowers have flourished. He wins.
