The Daily Alaskan.

Alaska 08

Last summer I took a walk with the kids. It was shockingly lush and green -- kind of obscenely so after the harsh Sonoran desert. Really, all the thick grass and plants covered with blooms and so many plants and trees and so tall and green and growing with abandon. It just felt obscenely and embarrassingly fertile. Like the plant world equivalent of those fertility idols with the big bottoms and boobs.

  1. That is a beautiful picture! And I understand exactly what you mean. When we first moved down here I just couldn't get used to all the green plants and flowers in every yard and on the sides of the roads and everywhere you looked green and color. Almost and I stress almost made me miss brown.

  2. Wow, very gorgeous! That was kind of how I felt about Oregon where everything was so darn green. Where I am now, it seems kind of brown-ish even though I'm in the greener part, supposedly.

You like me! You really really like me!

Or maybe you just find me horribly annoying and are about to let me know. Go ahead, I can deal.

So, whatever, you know, leave a message. Thanks!!!
