It hasn't been as warm as I would like but things are still doing what they do. My brother and I are busy scouting orchards. Zipping around looking for insects and disease while enjoying the scenery of Northern Lower MI.
Cherry Orchards are in full bloom. These are Tart Cherries.
The white Morels are popping up. I haven't found many yet.
The forest floor is a tapestry of wild flowers. I have seen Trilliums, Cimicifuga, bloodroot, Dogtooth Violet, Hepatica, wild onion, Jack in the Pulpit, Dutchmans britches, ferns and many other little beauties.
Many of the Trilliums will have this green wash, sometimes engulfing the whole blossom.
