Alaskan Spring

We call this Spring.
April Fools!

We even get snow in May so we have a ways to go still.

Good thing I like snow so much.

Mama say the only thing keepin' her going is her blooming Orchids this time of year.

 That's OK mama, I'll watch it snow while you water the plants.

But don't worry, Spring is coming.  We are getting some snow melt from the roof.

Poor red leaf rose bush, but it is pretty darn hardy. I bet it makes it.



  1. Ryker you Spring is beautiful. Sometimes we get snow in May (mostly in the mountains) and even in early June. A couple of years ago MOM and I went on a backpacking adventure the 2nd week of June and were caught in a two day snow storm. It was an adventure for sure. MOM loves the orchids.

  2. I remember 'break-up' in Alaska, and I very well remember sometimes getting snow on Mother's day--Your orchids are really beautiful, just like your next season will be!!

  3. Your orchids are beautiful, the snow....well it's beautiful but it's kind of old hat now. Not that it's particularly Springy here today. Rain and a cool blustery wind and kind of miserable.

  4. You've a beautiful snowy spring, Ryker! Your mom's orchids are gorgeous! My mom has some orchids too but none of them look like yours as most of them are skinny with no flowers at all. :)

  5. Sure am glad you like the snow Ryker!! It's time for some pretty flowers though outside now, like that beautiful orchid of your Ma's! I really, really want to see snow but that's because we don't get that here in Houston, but all I'd want is a couple days of it, can't imagine driving in it or ice!

  6. I would love some more snow! Mom, on the other hand, not so much ;)
    She loves your orchids, though!

  7. Whew, we will take our spring over yours, thats why you are a true snow dog Ryker!

  8. I love snow too, but not in April! Will it all melt, or will you still have a wee bit all year round?
    You look very smiley Ryker, and Mama's flowers are very pretty! But watch yourself around those icicles, okay?
    have a great week!
    Pippa :)

  9. Holy Moly ~~~ that's just not fair or human ~~~ the snow that is at this time ~~~ the orchids though are beautious!!!!!!

  10. Wow...that is a lot of spring snow. :)
    We have a ball like your blue one but ours is green. :)

  11. Snow, snow, snow. At least the weather is consistent!

  12. It's snowing here in Colorado on May Day! I'm sure that you do too - but we get it in June as well due to our high elevation.

    Gorgeous orchids and beautiful snow!

  13. RYKER....
