Someone caught an Atlantic bonito off the jetty at Menemsha early this week. That’s about a month early, and veteran anglers took note as word of the catch went around the waterfront. Come to think of it, the lilacs were early too this year, making their curtain call well before Memorial Day. Then just like that, they were gone.

June has arrived to take their place, though — beautiful June, the month for brides and graduates, last days of school, first days of summer.

At Nip n’ Tuck Farm in West Tisbury the first cut of hay is down. At Sweetened Water Farm in Edgartown, oxeye daisies form a backdrop for the rolling pasture where children go sledding in winter and horses graze in summer.

Ferries are full in both directions these days, and Steamship Authority ports in Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs are a bustling scene.

Islanders are gearing up for another season: ready or not, here it comes.
