Our first stop on Wednesday April 3, 2019 was Schutmaat Park on the Rabbit River in Hamilton, Michigan.
Our second stop was New Richmond Bridge Park on the Kalamazoo River located at the historic village of New Richmond - Allegan County, Michigan.
Our third stop was our very own Happy Boots.
We saw Skunk Cabbage.
Marsh Marigold Buds
And a surprise, Golden Saxifrage! We have found it here before but not this early in the year.
We saved our special Hepatica Hill for last, hoping that the sunny day would warm the Hepatica and tempt them to bloom. They were blooming! What a sight to see.
