Phenology with local naturalist Larry Weber every Friday morning at 8:20 on Northland Morning.
Backyard Almanac: Showers of babies ... just not showers of water...
Next week at this time, we'll be celebrating the longest day of the year with almost 16 hours of light, and the first day of summer.
If you want to celebrate now, though, go ahead; Larry calls it summer when the wildflowers out in the open outnumber the ones in the woods.
Trees are blooming, birds are raising babies, infant turtles are being threatened by infant racoons, love is in the air for mink and green frogs ... now if it would just rain. About five inches worth would catch us up nicely - just not all at once.
