The TundraGarden has really greened-up in the past couple of weeks. It went from this:
in the space of five days, while I was on a quick trip to upstate New York taking my daughter to spend part of the summer with her grandmother! The willows are green and the dwarf and Arctic buttercups are in full bloom.
And a good thing, too. There were a number of people who had been attending the Arctic Imperatives conference and were now touring the Arctic. They flew into Barrow and were given a bus tour. My husband was acting as tour guide, and must have mentioned the TG, since the participants demanded that the bus be detoured so they could see it. Apparently people were enthusiastic and many pictures were taken.
