Southeast Alaska’s Harbingers of Spring
Spring is a very special time in Southeast Alaska. It’s the end of a sometimes harsh, wet winter, which shares a beauty all its own. But when Mother Nature comes to town in Spring time, she brings with her a plethora of beauty and endless varieties of fresh greenery and colorful plant species. Spring sometimes lasts well into June or July in these parts, yielding a very short growing season for us gardeners. That’s the time to take advantage of what is provided for us, to gather the bounty and put up for the winter months.
