It's Lilac Time in the city!
Hundreds of types of lilacs are in bloom in May
It's not just about lilacs at Highland Park
The pansy bed
another year, another view
A bed of tulips!
More tulips :)
From atop of a dune 400' above the water level. I was fascinated by the weathering on the old tree stump, and the contrasting colors between the sky and sand.
The wind and the sand wreck havoc on this poor tree.
From the Scenic Drive overlook. It looks more like Hawaii than Lake Michigan, don't you think?
Sand, water, sky. I loved the lines and angles of this.
