It looks a bit boring....
But if you look closer, there's a tremendous amount of life and activity!
There's an abundance of trout lilies this year, more than I ever remember seeing previously.
And spring beauties too!
|Unfurling ferns are an especial favorite of mine.|
I'm not sure if these are butterflies or moths, but there are plenty of them fluttering about, feasting on wildflower nectar.
|Dutchman's breeches last such a brief time -|
I've only ever found them on one spot on Mackinac.
And violet's: in three differing colors!
The trillium's are just starting to make their appearance; more will be popping up soon.
A few hepatica still hanging on, they're usually the first wildflower to bloom here.
Spring blooms are a delight anywhere, but no where more so then the woods of Mackinac Island: in such abundant numbers and variety, it's easy to understand why the Victorians referred to Mackinac as the "Fairy Isle"!
