Pictures of the Meadow

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…

Abidiabidiabiddi, th-th-th-that’s allfolks (for today)

It’s that time again…

Once again it is time to show some of the flowers.  I am somewhat disappointed with my inability 😯 to take beautiful pictures and to learn to take better pictures.
Some of these are rather washed out, because the sun is so bright today.  In your mind’s eye, please envision these with vibrant colors 😆

Hmmm,  this one is still deciding whether it wants to look good or just hang out and make no effort.

also not quite filled in yet are the little pots on cottages 1 through 6 (but getting there nicely)

The sink in front of # 1. There’s some Thyme in there as well as Lavender and other assorted orphans…

The sink is kind of a catch-all this year.  Ummm, did I say that last year as well?

Now comes the box by cottage 9

This box is always my favorite. The moss grew so nicely all around the outside of it.
I have planted mint, sage, pansies and nasturtiums in there for a salad and a drink 😆

Looks like a hot mess but really isn’t – the box on cottage 2

Cottage 8 – rosemary, sage, parsley – no thyme …

I can’t get enough, I want you to see each and every leaf, hehe

Is it 5 o’clock yet?

Cottage 7. Hmmmm, cilantro – not doing well in any of the boxes…

Another brilliant day today. The guests are out and on the beach and some brought their boat and are going fishing in Lake Michigan tonight
