Those crisp, cool days of...summer?
It's June 29th, right? At least the botanical calendar says it is. Fireweed is in bloom. Last weekend, we had temperatures in the 90's and high humidity. This morning the thermometer read 35. Fahrenheit, that is. Darn near freezing. As I have mentioned previously, I live in the unofficial coldest spot in Minnesota.
Not that I'm complaining. If the whole summer could be like this, I wouldn't mind, as long as we had some rain once in a while. High temperatures today are supposed to hit the mid seventies. Perfect.
And now, the not-so-daily, or even not very weekly lupine picture. Seeds should be popping soon, and it looks like there will be plenty for those of you who wanted some.
