Despite the rain there was a sense that summer is here. A long stroll through Eden Prairie revealed the:

1) Miss Kim Lilac are starting as the Common Lilac are fading.

2) The Honeysuckle are in full bloom and ever-fragrant!

3) The Buckeye are in their full glory.

4) The Forest floor is finally alive with undergrowth. Lots of Jack-in-the-Pulpit!

5) Morel Mushroom have peaked and any more will be water-logged.

6) Wild Geranium are seen alongside the road.

7) Mosquitoes are the worst they will ever be.

More to come if we get some sun…..
