Fireweed

July 12, 2007

The flowers on a stalk of fireweed bloom from the bottom up. They say, in Alaska, that when the top of the fireweed blooms, there are only 6 weeks until winter / the first snow.

The fireweed in Alaska lines roads everywhere. I even got to try fireweed ice cream. Not bad. (Charlene had “polar bear”, for which no bears were harmed.)
