A rainy week in Anchorage calls for some flowers

It is fireweed season here in Alaska, both spray painted and wild.

Back in early April, prior to our departure from the lower 48 for Alaska, our friend Steph took us to the Public Market in Seattle.  We perused the flower, produce and fish stalls plus the souvenir shops, restaurants, and bakeries.  We briefly strolled the alleyway full of chewed gum, and she introduced us to Beecher's cheese.  I found myself giggling as I recalled the scenes filmed here for Sleepless in Seattle.
