David Goodgame asked me to take a look at Gardening, Alaskan Style, his personal website. The first thing you see is a photo of the summer garden he has created with Edith. If you didn’t know it was Alaska, you’d say, “Wow! Let’s move there–it looks like a great place to garden!” Roses, peonies, delphiniums all growing in luxurious abundance. A sight for sore eyes, let me tell you. Then he has several pages of information where he tells you more about his flowers and how he grows them–even where he finds the best buys. This bears further investigation. I can’t do it justice at the moment, but you can bet I’m coming back to read this site thoroughly. If you’re interested in lilies, roses, delphiniums, verbascums–or just pretty pictures, you should check it out, too.
If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
