PURPLE FLOWERING RASPBERRIES are in flower. I’m noticing quite a few CHIPMUNKS around. Some MILKWEEDS are already in flower. BLACKBERRIES already in small, tight green berries. Flowers are just passing. BLUETS seem to be long gone, despite Seymour’s late blooming date of July 5. I’m finding YELLOW COCOONS around. I’ve been paying attention to SPITTLEBUGS. I took 5 five off one plant, several inside the same spit mass. They’re green with two brown “eyes” and a rear end that seems to expand (extend?) and contract.
