“The fog was lifting off the water. It was just magical.” Jennifer Granholm
No monarch butterflies to enjoy, but the white admiral, fritillary, northern pearly eye, and lots of skippers are happy and beautiful.
It has been a great year for blue flag iris. and I am thrilled a painted lady butterfly has laid eggs on the pearly everlasting. The daisies and buttercup are the dominant roadside flowers.
The northern parula, red-eye vireo, and song sparrow serenade me as I work in my yard.
On hot days there is a fascinating struggle over the lake between the hot and cold air and it looks and feels like a thunderstorm is being created over Lake Superior with the very hot and cold air mix. The perfect place to be on a hot summer day, especially when the wind is off the lake.
