Here are some recent pictures I've taken around town, Barrow, Alaska.
I love the colors!! Can't you just hear the water lapping at the ice?
update: thanks Jeannie Brett for asking- this flower is called Mertensia maritima, or Oysterleaf.
It grows in the sand on beaches and seacliffs. (Info from the Barrow Wildflower Sketchbook by Michele Johnson)
Hooray for nature!!
Baby Ian was very interested in the broom and dustpan today! I like this picture, it reminds me of sweeping brush strokes (no pun intended, really!) and it sort of captures the sweet chaos that is my life right now, raising small kids etc...time flying by...
