Skagway Trip: Jewell Gardens, Part Two

As promised, here are some more photos of Jewell Gardens in Skagway.

In addition to beautiful flowers, Jewell Gardens also has a variety of vegetables and fruits.  Two large greenhouses have rows upon rows of veggies.  Rhubarb plants abound and there are cherry trees dotted around the back of the property.


...and boots!


...and cabbages.
Ducks and chickens!

It was a wonderful afternoon, poking around in the gardens, admiring the lovely glasswork, and enjoying the beautiful, sunny day.  We were refreshed and ready to take the ferry home to Juneau and resume our regular day to day lives!

I have always loved this poem!


  1. I definitely want to visit there now!
