Naturalist Larry Weber say this period just prior to the summer solstice gives us the earliest sunrises of the year, even though not yet the longest days.  In this first week of June, the rainfall total so far this month is lower than normal.  We are now near the end of bird migration.  Many blooming flowers, including lilacs, are in fine form this week as well.
