This weekend in the garden

This spring has been just beautiful. I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop. We're going to pay for this somehow. The temperatures have been running anywhere from 10 to 20 degrees above normal. Many flowering trees are weeks early. This is our dogwood tree in the backyard. It usually flowers mid May.
We did have a rip roaring thunderstorm barrel through on Saturday
complete with quarter size hail.
My fern garden is getting a good head start.
More buds.
Ugh. These are lily beetles. I noticed them munching and mating on my crown imperial. The next day there was an article in the paper saying they're originally from Europe and as of late invaded Canada, now they're showing up in New York.
Grecian wind flowers
Bleeding heart
Some sort of crab apple tree.

I hope it was a nice weekend wherever you live.
