Trip up Leelanau Peninsula

I set off in search of cherry blossoms yesterday afternoon.  I found them, and so much more.

Just north of Cedar there were an old house and barns, next to Holy Rosary Church.

Just a bit further north, I found the cherries.  They were beautiful.  It was hard to get a broad perspective, so I shot close-ups of the blossoms.

Just around the corner, I saw some trilliums.  There were trilliums all through that area, but for some reason I stopped at this place and saw something I had never seen, a verigated trillium.

They were scattered through the regular white variety and quite varied with different widths of green bands on the petals.

Then, a bit further along, I was these marsh maragolds growing along side the marshy roadside.

So much to see and enjoy.

    Absolutely gorgeous Mark. I have seen a woods full of the varigated trillium near the lighthouse on Old Mission. Worth a trip to photograph.
