Trillium Woods - Wildflower Woods

We took a hike on Sunday.  The trillium were in full bloom.  The forest floor at Grand Rapids' Aman Park was aglow in white with occasional flourishes of purple, blue and yellow.

Spring is a glorious time in Michigan.  Our winters drag on and most of us become weary of the cold and cloudiness.  Spring, however, is our promise of the amazing Michigan summers.  If it were summer here the entire year, the influx of population would be uncontrollable.  We have it all from May to October:  beautiful white sandy beaches , fresh water inland seas, and low humidity.  If God owned a summer cottage it would surely be on the shores of a Michigan lake.  Ahh, it's good to call Michigan home!

If you're in the area, Aman Park is located on Lake Michigan Drive in Ottawa County between Standale and Allendale.  Despite its location in Ottawa County, it is a park maintained by the City of Grand Rapids.
