From My Lens

Fields of Fireweed

CHSR Fireweed

As beautiful as it is to look at, fireweed holds a secret many Alaskans don’t like to talk about.  The blooms on the fireweed act as a seasonal clock… the closer the blooms are to the top of the plant, the closer we are to saying   When the flowers finally reach the top, we know that it’s time to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall, and *shudder* winter.

  1. We saw so many beautiful fields of fireweed as we traveled through Alaska this summer but I was never able to get a good photo of a big field like this. Thank you! Makes me miss Alaska even more.
