Lilacs and other smelly Things

Working in the Hummingbird (cottage 6) yesterday, I was enveloped by the scent of the lilac blossoms.  Heavenly.

Morning Coffee with Pictures

Good morning everyone!

Sitting on the front porch on this foggy, quiet Wayfarer – Wednesday morning, I thought you might want to see what we see today…

My favorite cup. I brought it back from Germany so very many years ago.  It’s got a chip but I don’t care.

The weather man said the fog would burn off this afternoon and he promised a nice and sunny afternoon. Yay!

Guess what

I drove by Marvin’s Garden (spot) yesterday and just had to stop for a look-see.
What a cute little nursery this is and I have never stopped in before?
It’s located on 31 between Interlochen and Frankfort.

Yes, you are seeing an outhouse.  It’s just for fun. There are several of these babies

Veggies.  Mike  says that he has too much work to do in the cottages for a garden this year 😦

I came away with a flat of Zinnias. I love those little happy flowers, and a flat of impatience for the little pots in front…

A quick walk through the backyard this afternoon.  Temps were in the mid 70’s here by Lake Michigan – simply a perfect Michigan spring day.

Marc is working on his boats.  He’s been fishing for and catching lots of  pan fish on lower Herring Lake

Maybe this year the Wayfarer boat might also get a work out this year

The duck boat!   It’s not duck season but a boy always has fun working on his gear 😉

See the shower back there?  It’s going to be great for those guest who want to get the sand of their legs after coming back from the beach

The apple trees. This year there are going to be blossoms…

Mike is not happy

Mike, the Wayfarer’s Mr.Fix-it,  may not be happy, but I love it.

The first mowing of the year!   Especially beautiful on a crisp, sunny morning.

Since he mows about 5 or 6 acres, he does not look forward to that task.
But once its done, it looks so beautiful. Green and luscious – good enough to eat if I were a sheep that is.
Now don’t make any jokes, baaaaaaaaa 🙂

This nice green carpet also works in pulling people off the road and into our driveway.  Business is great this weekend with fantastic guests. Every single one.
