SUNLIGHT ON MY LITTLE TRIBUTE TO THE INSIDE PASSAGE
I love rocks and like to pick up ones with different shapes and place them around my flower beds. I especially like the big yellow rocks in our regions as they are so soft that it is easy to make bird baths out of them. I also use them as a base to set potted plants during our warm weather.
Just outside the front door to the right I made a tribute to our vacation through the inside passage. Prince bought me a solar lighthouse a few years back and I wanted to display it properly. It has evolved with more rocks of different shapes and sizes around the big one. First I planted from seed some blue fescue which is a small ornamental that grows in clumps. I put the first three pots of it around the front and then to the right side. During the drought this summer some of it just up and died even with watering so I put in some thyme to the right.
The little light house was trimmed in red but the weather has faded it out until it is almost white all over. This summer I might try to find some plastic paint and trim it back to its original colors.
At night the sweet little amber light comes out of the openings and if I concentrate on it I can feel the crisp air on my face and the sway of the big ship going through the inside passage. It is a wonderful moment that Prince and I shared on our trip. Others would head for ship entertainment and Prince and I would go up to the glass in area at night to watch the shoreline and lights pass by.
The vast open areas in Alaska fool you and then you see a cargo ship with big machinery loaded on its deck go by and the machinery looks like micro machine toys. Then you realize just how far away an object really is from you.
Prince capture the sun shining on the little tribute last week and put it on film and I wanted to share the beauty with you.
Some people have and may continue to laugh at my silly little tribute but the Kitty Justice is it makes me feel good to gaze upon it and it brings back wonderful memories. Shhhh, do you feel the ship?
