Fall Color from Michigan 2022

 It has been a perfect Autumn here in Michigan, nice weather, vivid colors, and long lasting!  Here is a collection of some things I’ve seen in the last few months.

 Connor Bayou Park  

Mike and I walked here on our 45th!!  Wedding Anniversary.  When we got married there was an announcement in the local newspaper, the headline was, “Couple to live in Grand Haven”.  That still makes me chuckle since both of us have lived here our whole lives.

Bass River Recreation Area

Silver Creek Pathway north of Luther Michigan

Armintrout-Milbocker Nature Preserve in Allegan

Dune Harbor County Park Muskegon County

Kirk Park Ottawa County

Stearns Creek Park Ottawa County. This is where we saw some of the most vivid red leaves,

Rosy Mound Natural Area with my favorite daughter Betsy.  So many stairs but beautiful.

Marie and I went to Hoffmaster State Park in Muskegon County this week.  The temperature was in the high 60’s with sunshine and blue sky!

Marie and I went to Pigeon Creek Park in Ottawa County last week.  It was another beautiful day!

I hope you enjoy these walks and the pictures from them.  Happy Autumn!

June 2022 Wildflowers Ottawa County, Michigan

June 2022 There are so many pretty wildflowers this time of year.  Every day I am finding different flowers blooming.  Now it is the end of July, most of these pictures are from June from parks in Ottawa County.

Rose Pogonia Orchid

Pitcher Plant

Columbine at Connor Bayou Park and it is still blooming July 31!  I saw the first one blooming May 15, so these plants have been blooming for two and a half months!  

I’m not going to name them all.  If I do, I’ll never get this posted.
