Summer Time!

Summer time in Alaska is beautiful, especially in Fairbanks. Because of our geographic location, we have the good fortune of having nice long, warm, sunny summer days. Actually, this weekend we are celebrating Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. We will have over 21 hours of daylight! Because of the amount of daylight we are able to grow big beautiful flowers and the UAF campus is gorgeous. This is a picture of my favorite, the Dahlia. Some of these dahlias get as big as a dinner plate! This one is just outside of Signers' hall, where the Admissions Office is located.
