“Cooler by the Lake”

Superior Views, First week of July

Summer is late this year because of a rainy cold spring, and the strength of the sun is needed everyday to warm the air near the big lake.  Because of the crisis with bees I am closely watching all pollinator plants.  Without a doubt I am see more bees and butterflies in Northern Wisconsin than I observe in Minneapolis

Carpets of bunch berries cover the forest floor, wild geraniums, Canada anemone and flowering chives are the first to bloom.

Lupine is not blooming yet along the lake, but dominates the roadsides with the hawkweed, daisies, and buttercup.  A magnificent composition!

And everyday day on this big lake ends in beauty.
