Phenology

First Week of June

Gardeners pick ripe strawberries, a delicious fruit high in vitamin C. Many tall bearded irises and peonies have attractive flowers. Baltimore oriole and blue jay parents are busy feeding their nestlings. Juvenile eastern chipmunks explore their new environment. More green frogs - the banjo twangers - have begun calling. Minnesota is home to 43 native orchid species, including the moccasin-flower now blooming in northern forests and the official state flower, the showy pink and white lady's-slipper blooming at the University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. In central and northern Minnesota, newly-hatched common loons ride on the backs of their parents who catch small fish and floating insects for them.

June 6, 2016 - In Duluth, common purple lilacs, crabapple trees, and bleeding-hearts were at their blooming best.
