We saw many plants and yes they all amazed me. This is a Purple Avens. We also saw Blue-bead Lily, (Clintonia borealis), Black Snakeroot (Sanicula odorata), and many different flowering shrubs.
Bridge on the north side of the dam, don't miss this part of the loop trail.
We had lunch under this wonderful tree.
Next we drove west of Shelby, west of US 31 to Genevieve Casey Nature Sanctuary, part of the Michigan Nature Association. First time I was here. It is a nice place to visit, although the trail was hard to keep track of and several times we almost turned back. There is a loop trail that takes you around a large marsh.
We were greeted at the entrance by many Wild Columbine blooming.
Also Blue-Eyed Grass
Cool bridge over Hmm...maybe Cargill Creek I'm not sure.
Along the sometimes very wet trail.
The last of the Marsh Marigold
Pine in the dry area of the sanctuary.
Several Pink Lady's Slipper were looking nice in the pines.
Well I'm having trouble with this Blogger not working so I'll end the day there. Another great day!
