Backyard Almanac: End of Spring

 Purple plants rise above green undergrowth in a forest
Luke Moravec

It's the end of spring. The flowers say so. "My definition of the end of spring is when the wildflowers out in the open outnumber those in the woods," says Larry Weber. "That certainly happened this week." Daisies and hawkweed are growing in abundance.

Animals are still staying active. The birds and the bugs are making their presence known. However, "the big news with critters this week... is turtles," says Weber who spotted a snapping turtle laying eggs.

The animals and plants continue to flourish despite another dry week. The total precipitation between May and June this year is currently seven inches below average.

You can hear Backyard Almanac every Friday at 8:20am on Northland Morning.
