Early Summer/Nature Notes

Summer's here!

It has been hot and muggy here. Yesterday we were out and about but today we plan to stay indoors. It definitely feel like summer.

Largest square: a green-eyed bee (a sweat bee, I think) on daisy fleabane (Erigeron annuus), wild mustard (Sinapsis arvensis), pasque flower seed head (Pulsatilla). snail and yellow hawkweed (Hieracium caespitosum).

Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.

You say hot and muggy? In Ontario? If you want hot and muggy, come to Texas! 98 temp and 95 muggy!

Love the little glimpses of summer in your collage. Now if summer would just show it's face here in Ontario! It may be hot and humid but boy that sky is still grey!
