Bloom has just begun. About 5% of the 5 year old Marquette, 6 year old Frontenac, and 6 year old La Crescent have begun to bloom. This is about 4 days behind the vines in Madison.
The Rose Chafers have also returned. I only spotted 3 total, but all three were on a new planting of Frontenac Blanc. This is only a couple of days later than average, and about 10 days later than last year.
Jack Ford and I tried to get some work done this evening, but then a short burst of thunderstorms went through didn't let us get much done. We did get to see a nice rainbow though.
