Furrow orbweavers become conspicuous around homes around May.
Did you take note of where you saw the weird, pleated leaves of Adam-and-Eve orchid last winter? Look for their less-noticeable flowers to appear in their place from mid-May to early June.
Coyotes howl the least in May, after litters are born.
