News: Blooming in Alaska
We have tulips blooming in Haines, Alaska! Also this week gardens are flowering in Minnesota, Wyoming, Montana, Vermont, and New Hampshire.

"A beautiful splash of red in the spring green."

"The flowers in the tulip garden finally bloomed. Flowers and grass are starting to grow and Central Montana is turning very green."

Spring can also include windstorms - and dangerous weather.

"OH NO! A windstorm blew through and all of the petals were blown with it! It was a sad day."
