We survived the first "big" weekend of the summer season. Nothing too crazy, but lots of fun. I even got to hang out with my mountain biker buddies for the Ride the Keweenaw. Woo hoo!
Yesterday I noticed some of my little petaled friends popping out of the brown leaves. Here are some shots of the wildflower progression taken around my house (because I am a wildflower geek!). As always, nothing spectacular, just informational. Also, if you are looking for flowers, not all of them have blossomed yet -- just leafing out.
The red stem is a wild rose
Fly honeysuckle blossoms
Forget-me-not just popped out!
My first daffodil (not wild) and a poppy (not real)
Time for the real treat. Remember a couple weeks when I was looking for arbutus? Well, I found some! It was so special that I took a video for you.
And just for fun, here is a picture of me and Duce. So far, it seems he is recovering nicely from his surgery.
Me and my sweet, handsome prince
And guess what else. No blackflies yet....
