|JUNEBERRIES STILL LOADED WITH FRUIT|
|BEACH PEA MAKES QUITE A DISPLAY|
|UNUSUAL WHITE BEACH PEA FLOWERS|
|A TONGUE OF SILT FROM THE BAD RIVER|
Saturday, 8:00 AM. 58 degrees F at the ferry dock, 53 on the back porch. Wind variable and calm at present. The sky is crystal clear, the humidity still 89%. The barometer stands at 30.67" but has begun to fall, predicting rain tomorrow. The week ahead will be warmer and unsettled again, but it is a gorgeous morning.
As I have said, this is a great year for fruit, and the Juneberry in the garden continues to have repening fruit, well into July; other years the tree would be stripped bare by the birds and chipmunks by now.
This has been a tremendous growth year for everything, and the beach peas on the corner of 9th and Old Military are spectacular. A few of the blooms are pure white, and very attractive. But don't let the twining plant get into your garden!
Bridges are still out in the region and it is problematic to go east or south, and the silt from the Bad River flooding is visible in the lake from twenty miles away on the bluffs north of Ashland.
