County Road Ends at Water

No Kidding! This is in Glen Arbor, MI -- don't keep driving or you will end up in Wisconsin! (If your car turns into a boat, that is . . . a duck (?))

Early Sunflower

Usually I don't have sunflowers for a few more weeks . . . of course, I didn't plant this one -- it is courtesy of the birdfeeder!

Sunset, Lake Michigan

Yes, I said sunset! This was taken from the opposite side of Lake Michigan. We have sunrises here on the Chicago side . . .

Arch Rock - Mackinac Island


Not very close to home in Nunda Township -- just away on vacation in Michigan. Anyone want to guess the story of how this was formed? An old Indian legend. . .

Wedding Cake


This is from my cousin's wedding -- the mother of the groom (my aunt) actually MADE this cake -- can you believe it?

Cherries in the yard . . . to jam in the cupboard!












Delightful sour cherries . . first a pie and now jam! I also made strawberry-rhubarb jam and it is delicious, too. Raspberries are next -- just starting to ripen in our garden.

Frog -- caught!

A simple pleasure from childhood -- catching the ever-illusive frog! Toads are much easier -- not as slippery. Lucky day for my children, this frog was caught . . . and then let go a little while later.

Crocus - Spring is here!



I haven't posted in forever! Things have been busy, we were out of the USA for one month. So here it is Spring again. But it snowed here 2 days ago -- 7 inches. Fortunately today it is 50 degrees and everything is pretty much melted. . . .
