So much is going on outside that it’s hard to know what else is going on. And to make matters worse, when one thing happens, something else is happening, too.
When great mullein blooms in the fields, then mock orange petals have all fallen and water willows are blossoming beside the streams.
When elderberry bushes come into full flower and cottonwood cotton floats in the wind, then the first chiggers bite in the woods and garden.
When the tall spikes of the yucca are in bloom, then Japanese beetles invade the soybeans.
