Flower Magic in the Midnight Sun

My best friend Kelly and I have a long past of frolicking through the Anchorage woods together. We frolic and collect. Sometimes it’s moss. Sometimes it’s branches, but most of the time it’s flowers.

One great thing about Alaska summers is the endless sunlight. Tonight we decided to go pick daisies on the side of the road. We set out at 9 p.m. By the time we completed a flower crown it was 10 p.m. and still plenty of light for a photo shoot.

Flower crowns are surprisingly easy. All you need is some floral wire, floral tape and small clusters of wildflowers. We used lilac, daisies, beautiful Jacob’s ladder and wild roses.

No tutorial today, but I just wanted to show off my beautiful friend.
