Summer Solstice

The longest day of the year here in Michigan had plenty of sunshine as this Tiger Swallowtail butterfly demonstrated, soaking up the sun and nectar from flowers in a local field I discovered.

A Beautiful Day in Michigan

I enjoyed some wonderful views and landscape scenes this afternoon in Southwest Michigan. The first image is of an old shed I discovered overgrown with vegetation:

I also found what I think were Blue Spruce trees and other evergreens in a meadow:

PineAnd of course I couldn’t resist photographing the rolling hills I found as clouds rolled along overhead:

So this was just another beautiful summer day in Michigan I’m happy to share with you here 🙂

Tulip Time Begins!

Tulip Time in Holland, Michigan begins this weekend. Visitors are drawn to the area’s main attraction – approximately 4.5 million tulip bulbs! They are located throughout the city. You can see a few I’ve photographed below. If you visit the area, be prepared to see parades, dutch dancers in wooden shoes, and lots of smiles 🙂
