Spring is here! I went driving around Leelanau County today and this is what I saw.
Forsythia. I love forsythia. Being one of the first plants to wake up in the spring, it is a bright light after many months of darkness in northern Michigan. The yellow is a perfect yellow and the flowers are so simple. If you cut it early, before it blooms outside,you can force it to bloom indoors. Just bring a branch in the house and put it in a vase of water.
Most people consider dandelions a weed. But I think they are lovely. I suppose they have their time and place. The yellow dandelions outside this old church in Leelanau County compliment the Purple Grape Hyacinth nicely, don’t you think? I am so glad I went for a drive today. I didn’t want to miss the peak of the blossoms this year. I hope you enjoy the photos.
