The transformation to Hidden Lake Gardens in less than one week was astounding and, at times, a bit of sensory overload. The heavy rain followed by sunny days brought out new wildflowers, hosta, tulips, and bees. Thought for the day: All flowers trace their roots (pun alert) to wildflowers. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day.

Friend Pat and I have decided to try and visit Michigan State University’s 755-acre Hidden Lake Gardens once a week for the next few weeks to show the progression of Spring through wildflowers and other changes. These photos are from Tuesday’s visit where we saw some flowers beginning to fade (like many daffodils), some peeking out, and others in full bloom.

My friend Pat returned from her Winter hideaway so we headed to Hidden Lake Gardens to see what wildflowers were out. The day started out cloudy, but the sun came out to make the lingering raindrops sparkle. It made for a fun outing.

In addition to lines and curves from my last post. Pat and I saw some Fall colors. Having not had a hard frost yet, many summer colors were also still in bloom. Here is some of what we saw.
