Alaska Botanical Gardens

Lately, I've really taken to photographing the small things. Especially flowers. There's just something about them that gets me excited - their bold hues, graceful curves and dramatic color contract. They're so simple, yet so strikingly beautiful. If I could turn this into a blog about nature photography, it would be done in a heartbeat.  

These photographs came from my time spent at the Alaska Botanical Gardens this past weekend.  

Enjoy the small things.

I also have also become obsessed with birch trees...

Today we are enjoying exactly 19 hours and 21 minutes of sunshine and 65 degree weather. It's officially summer!

Happy summer solstice!
