Beginning of June

When we returned from our trip on June 1, we were amazed how much of a jungle our yard and garden had become. Things grow fast here at the end of May! We also saw spittlebugs on all kinds of plants. I don't think I've ever seen so many spittlebugs before. Maybe an extra good year for them?

When we looked in our yard, we found raspberries blooming. We saw black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) trees in bloom on our ride back from the airport.

Also, blooming in and around our yard were:
White Clover

Black Medick

White Campion

Goat's Beard (Tragopogon dubius)

and Pineapple Weed (which for some reason the Blogger keeps rotating)

On June 3, we found ripe wild strawberries in our garden (Fragaria vesca). Our Rose bush bloomed in June 6.
