    After the 88 degree temps and afternoon showers Spring has Sprang into Summer. The air is alive with bird sounds and the trees are coming alive!

    Wow very pretty. We got snow yesterday after several days of 70's temps.

    The weather has been so weird. We really didn't have much of a Spring.

    Thanks for looking!

    Cedar-Apple Rust a fungus with a fancy name of Gymnosporangium juniperi-virginianae. Ugly, ain't it?

    Looks kinda wormy [​IMG] I imagine that it would befuddle the chickens for awhile [​IMG]

    Oh, those are all so pretty -- thank you! And that fungus, wow. It kinda reminds me of a chia-head gone bad. [​IMG]

    The fungus is definitely not something you'd want to see in a dark alley. This one is the biggest I've ever seen, and I swear those tentacles move when I'm not looking.
