Summer has finally arrived with the appearance of tiny wild strawberries, blossoms on the thimbleberry plants, and so many variations of the color green! For some reason, I have an affinity toward the bright and feathery flowers of both orange and yellow hawkweed. It was fun to hear that guests had even discovered edible oyster mushrooms on the property.
Tiny tadpoles wriggle about in a rain-filled pool along the driveway, and Ravens can always be heard calling through the trees. The lupines are in full bloom along the roadside, and large stands of milkweed attract many monarch butterflies.
By day, fawns can now be seen at the heels of their mothers, and fireflies light up the yard at night with their bright blinking glow.
It’s finally hot enough to take that dip into Lake Superior! So get out and enjoy summer in the wild!
