The Hope of Spring

The conservatory at Hidden Lake Gardens has a modest collection of flowers from various climates in three different rooms. During a recent visit the amaryllis were the star of the show. My friend Jill and I both felt a renewed hope in the not-too-distant emergence of Spring flowers. Here are a few shots from the conservatory.

Winter Reflections

It has been cold, here in Michigan. These are a few winter scenes from a nearby pond; one of many. Michigan’s high water table creates many of these ponds in Southern Michigan. These images are best viewed from a warm setting. 🙂
