And a few other pretty flowers:
The blueberries have set their blossoms, and the vestiges of this summer's fruit can be seen as minute green specks where the blossoms have been relinquished.
Another fruit, the black cherry is in bloom; each blossom will form a single cherry, and tiny insects are helping with the pollination.
An advantage of the cool, wet weather this past week (in addtion to filling the lake back up) is that the flowers have a much longer season. Also, the black flies aren't too bad yet, but there are plenty of tics around.
I found this Orange Jelly Fungus on the ground, but it must have fallen off the tree where it grew. Jelly fungus are reportedly edible, but I didn't sample it!

The geese don't wait so long - their young have already hatched out and the goslings are being introduced to the lake by their parents. Talk about having your ducks in a row!
