Lilac Time on Mackinac

The lilacs are in full, glorious bloom and both the aroma and the view are completely intoxicating!

Marquette Park has many varieties; the Island is home to over three hundred species of lilacs

This image is the essence of Mackinac - horses, water, Round Island lighthouse, lilacs, the ferry dock and if you look closely on the dock, a bicycle rider.

The blooms are quite early this year, unfortunately, it's unlikely we'll have any left for Lilac Fest in mid-June, but we'll enjoy them now - there's just no where on earth like Mackinac when the lilacs are in bloom!
