4:15-4:35, sunny, mid-70s. A quick stop at a large field on Mt. Pleasant Road (about half a mile in from Rt. 94, on the left) that is in the early stages of management for pollinators. Currently it is a colorful mix of cosmos, coreopsis, and a few other annuals, with the perennials that were seeded in hopefully to become more prominent in future years.
