Prairie Smoke covered in morning rain

A very damp, cold start to June. Only 63 outside, with sporadic thunderstorms. At least four days of the last weeks have seen rain, with Superior's water level rising, and there's flooding in some areas of Iowa. Good time for the garden; Columbine's grown about 2 feet tall, and is filling in many of the unplanted areas along the retaining wall. Haven't heard peepers for over a week now; only heard Tree Frogs last night.

Vegetable garden's taking off, with the tomato plants shooting up, the raspberries building up thick clusters of foliage around the base, and the strawberries are blossoming.
