I'm melting

High today in the 90s, very expectant, humid, threatening weather, but no storms yet.  It's 82 and sticky inside the house!  We're putting the a/c on.  Forecast is for severe thunderstorms, but they're not here yet.  We really need rain.

The aronia are blooming.  Very delicate and nice.

Camassias are up and ready to open.  The deep purple salvia May Night are opening.

Everything is so early.

The doublefile viburnunm is starting to bloom:
Both of the Blackhaw viburnums (West walk and Spruce berm) have aphids.  I cut off most of the affected branches where the leaves had curled and withered.  It's not a severe infestation, and they'll be ok, but still.

The Blackhaw by the a/c units has one lone blossom in the rear, hard to see!
