Tag Archives: Trilliums



Another sign of spring – Trilliums! These photos were taken a couple weeks ago, but I’m just getting them posted. I missed the peak, but found these along M-115 between Cadillac and Mesick, one of my favorite sites for trilliums.       I guess its also dandelion season, too, and lady bugs.  This was right next to the trilliums.   Stay safe and enjoy […]

Lots of Trilliums and other Spring Wild Flowers

Trilliums and Other Signs of Springs

This barn door with the vines caught my eye as I was headed to a nearby […]

Trip up Leelanau Peninsula

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 […]

The trilliums are in bloom in northern Michigan.  Actually, they are a bit past their prime, but still so nice to see.  These were found along M-115 near Mesick. (Click to enlarge)

Trilliums (late post)

I took these photos of trilliums a couple weeks ago and am just getting around to post them.  As I stated in an earlier post, they were really spectacular this year.  I’ve never seen them so thick and wide-spread.  I posted a couple of these earlier, but here is a more complete set.   #1   #2   #3   #4   #5   #6 […]

Signs of Spring

It looks like Spring has come to Orchestra Camp Colony. Driving up on Friday afternoon the woods were spectacular with trilliums.   Although it was a chilly morning, the sun did come out and we hauled the kayaks down to the lake and paddled around the south end of the lake.  The water level is very high.  I was able to kayak right over one […]
