We took a cruise ship to Alaska last June, and I'd just uploaded some pictures of this Alaska trip to my flowerpictures site, in the Alaska cruise page. It's nice to take a few days to escape the Summer heat of this year in the Midwest USA. This year, it rains too much and too hot for human in the Midwest, but it seems very good for plants and grasses! I feel bad the Southern US (especially Texas, Arizona), they got one of the worst drought in history!

We'd visited 2 special gardens during our Alaska cruise (Carnival Spirit) in June, 2011. The first garden is the Glacier garden in Juneau, Alaska. This garden is small but very special with unique upside down tree flower towers. The second garden is the Butchart gardens in Victoria, Canada. The Butchart gardens are very beautiful, and well organized. All pictures of the Butchart gardens were taken in the evening around 7-9 pm, therefore, they are are not very bright. We wish to visit this garden again on a sunny day!
