Alaskan Greetings!


Five bonus points to anyone who can tell me what the first picture of green is. I took these pictures a while ago ... before weeks of cloudy, rainy weather. Now the tree is leaning over my stairs heading into the front door of the house. Hint: I duck to avoid the buzzing as I head up the steps.
Thought I'd add a few pics on here. Really need to mow the lawn again and do another little photo day around here. This is our new home. The building to the left is the guest house that Kevin will be living in. It is nearly done inside. 99% plumbed, electrical and sheetrock. Still needs paint, floors and we need to put in one more window! Then the outside at some point.
This picture I took last week. Excuse the white thing at the door ... we pulled out a stackable washer/dryer unit and I need to put it on Craigs List real soon here! We have beautiful blooming trees and whildly growing rhubarb!
Took the kids to Seward camping over the past weekend and visited Exit Glacier. Neat to see one right up close ... just no touching of this one. Will have to go find another one! We are finding all kinds of things to do and places to bring you all when you come to visit!

I guess that it is the "bee tree".

And I was going to call it a "bee bush". :)

Before I got to comments I told
Isä that I'll call it the Bee Tree.

Points to all of you! I have another one as well ... it is just more conveniently placed farther away! Today Kevin hacked off half the bee tree/bush. Now I think I can walk up the stairs without ducking! :)
