We have been in Alaska for a month. It is warmer than we had anticipated and the weather has been beautiful. Things are turning green and flowers are blooming in the woods and in yards. One of the most prolific bloomers smells lovely and has beautiful white flowers. These trees are everywhere in the woods and in peoples yards. I liked them so much that I looked on the Internet to find out what they were. Come to find out, they are Chokecherry trees which is an invasive species that is deadly to moose. After finding out about the trees, I don't think they are so pretty anymore.
