Interior Alaska gardening

I believe these are beans. I should get out in the garden more often, apparently.

There go our peas, shooting to the moon.

The irises in our garden are just past their peak, I think, at the end of June. But they're still nice to look at.

I like this columbine a lot. Got a whole cluster of them in perennial bed.

Ah, the columbine. What more is there to say?

I'm not sure what this is. But it's in our garden, so I'll just call it the purply-pinkish flower. I'm sure my wife knows what it is, though.

Our two lilac bushes are blooming this year like they haven't in years. It's kind of like they enjoyed us leaving them alone.

My wife, Julie, swears the plants in the veggie garden grew 2 inches today (June 25, 2012).

The flowers in our perennial bed seem to erupt from nowhere in a short period of time. It's almost like the plants know they need to show off because the summer's so short here in Interior Alaska.

Here are some of the flowers from our perennial bed at our house in Two Rivers. These are my kind of flowers: no maintenance.

Our greenhouse, earlier this week in May 2012. I built it last year and am actually pretty proud of how it turned out.
