So this adventure is from June 11, 2012 - Pigeon Creek Park, Ottawa County Michigan
On our (our is my sister Marie and me) way to park we stopped along the road where we have visited a certain ditch, this ditch is filled with many different types of wildflowers in summer.
Along the trail at Pigeon Creek Park.
Also that day, we made a brief stop at Connor's Bayou, another Ottawa County park. This park is being "improved". For years we have admired the wildflowers along this driveway, New Jersey Tea, Poke Milkweed, Hare Figwort, Round-lobed Hepatica, and more. Unfortunately this drive has been widened so these plants have been bulldozed.
Poke Milkweed (Asclepias exaltata)
So that's a little bit of June, right here on the first day of January 2013!
