Summer is in full bloom!

The grass is green, wildflowers are blooming, and we have had a wonderfully sunny week here at Garden Gate B&B. Summer is officially here! It's a great time to stroll around our grounds and check out the many flowerbeds, and of course, the wild roses and bluebells. For even more Alaska flowers, be sure to stop by the gardens at the Palmer Museum and Visitor's Center. Afterwards, explore their exhibits featuring the settlement, mining, and agricultural history of the Matanuska Valley.
