Skagway flowers

Flowers from around  Skagway. Some are columbines I know but I don't know what the others are.  The last picture is a picture of a rhubarb  plant.  It was huge...I should have gotten my wife to stand by it so you would have a point of reference.  I kept telling my wife and daughter that I was sure it was rhubarb but I had never ever seen any that big.  I finally asked someone local if it was rhubarb and they confirmed that it was.

Beautiful flowers, Neal... And that rhubarb plant is enormous... Wooooooo... My mother used to make the best rhubarb I have ever eaten. Haven't had any in years and years.

I don't think I have ever seen such a big rhubarb plant! The flowers you've captured are beautiful, but they make me yearn for Spring on another cold day down here.

The columbines are very lovely!
You should have asked what they used to fertilize that rhubarb plant. :)
