Howdy all you fine folks. Becca and I planted Dahlia tubers that we dug up last year. We have never gotten any of our dahlias to bloom a second year before. I’m hoping this will be the year. We have friends that have a pretty good size dahlia garden. They store their tubers and take care not to let them get moldy or dry up during the winter. This year we really tried to keep ours good. We shall see.
It sure is a nice time of year, all the new flowers blooming and so many trees in full flower. Love it, Love it!
Wow, we just had a huge thunderstorm blow over. The first good one of the season. We like to sit on the deck, under the roof and watch as the lightning lights up the mountains surrounding us. Sure did make my dog nervous. All is fine now. Tomorrow I’ll check out my driveway. It may have a big washout where all that rain water rushes down and out to the road.
It’s that time of year, the crews are working hard to clear the snow from the Going To The Sun road in Glacier National Park. I don’t think I have ever seen that big of a snow plow before, it is huge. Pretty amazing that they can drive that small road with those big rigs and clear that much snow. The snowpack over the winter gets pretty deep up there. Looking at the pictures you can’t tell where the road is suppose to be. They have the east side of the park going to Many Glacier, clear and you can get into a few more places over there. The west side is closed just beyond McDonald Lake.
This week we have photos of Fishercap Lake in the Many Glacier Area.
Enjoy another part of Glacier Park.
Fishercap Lake in Glacier National Park.
This tiny, shallow, 12-acre lake is one of Glacier National Park’s best kept wilderness secrets.
Surrounded by spectacular looking rugged mountains on all sides, the lake’s still aqua colored surface mirroring the peaks on a sunny clear day.
Beautiful chimes, perfectly arranged,
one by one in harmonious array;
singing their song, evoking a spell
of enchantment as they gently sway.
Poetry By Ken, You Raise Me Up.
Each time I’m weary and weak,
I rise up to soar with new wings
When to your loving hand I cling.
If it is true that trouble comes in waves,
then I have been buried by a typhoon lately.
Every move I make lands me in another hole.

Thought for Today –
We could learn a lot from a box of crayons:
some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull,
some have weird names, and all are different colors…but they all exist very nicely in the same box.
Thunder and Lightning with, Steven and Becca
