Wild Alaskan Fireweed Flowers growing on my property

By

Alaskan Fireweed

Fireweed Flowers are a native wild flower that grows all over the state of Alaska, and these beautiful flowers are growing on our properties in Alaska.

My wife has been pointing out to me beautiful moved green lawns in Alaska saying she wants our properties to look like this.

But low and behold only to find out later on in the summer that 50% of our properties are covered with these beautiful Fireweed Flowers.

So for now it looks like approx. 50% of the properties will be getting mowed because I (will not) be cutting or mowing down the beautiful Fireweed Flowers on our properties.

Here are 3 photos of the Fireweed that my wife took yesterday on our properties ;o)

How beautiful! I love wild flowers, of almost any kind. And I like that you matched your font color to the flower color. Nice touch.

Good morning Bob. Like your line of thinking on this topic. The flowers should be left untouched. Enjoy your day

The Fireweed flowers are spectacular, Bob.  When I visited Alaska many years ago, I was struck by its awesome pristine beauty.
