A Lovely Spring Day in Michigan

Today’s spring photos are from my friend Diane who lives in the greater Detroit area. One day spring was everywhere in her garden. I do love tulips which of course do not grow in hot Florida. Thanks Diane!

Spring is my favorite time of year. As a child, it seemed a miracle when things around me came alive after the drab, gray days of winter. I do miss a northern spring and all the beautiful spring flowers like daffodils, tulips, forsythia, and lilacs. When I lived in Michigan, it was like a fairy land when you woke up to a sea of yellow blossoms on bushes everywhere or tulips in all the yards. I now experience northern spring vicariously through the photos of others. Florida does not get cold enough for all these beauties.

I hope you enjoyed our visit to Michigan.

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.

  1. Spring has been late this year and it is so welcome (still cold — in the low 50s right now and yesterday I don’t think got above 60). Love the photo of the bird coming out the birdhouse!

  2. I loved it Carol for the same reason as you do! Vicarious spring. (We almost always get back to Oregon too late for the early spring flowers). Thanks for sharing. Some of your friends pictures look a great deal like my daughter’s from Oregon — the tulips and grape hyacinth ones especially.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
