Went through my photographs for anything unique that represents autumn.
Not sure of the exact species.
Some of the parks are finally opening in Michigan. They are only open a few hours a day, for a few days a week for now. I personally think this is horrible but as one of many captors I am grateful for any reprieve right now. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time for them to “ramp up” the lockdowns again until their agenda of a global socialist regime becomes the norm. Anyone fighting them now? Not many. Most are too “conditioned.”
I’ve been out a few times now with my camera. Snapping shots of whatever catches my eye. I think I missed most of the water lilies for now. It was a beautiful view across the lake when these shots were taken. There are more people than I usually see since we all have such a short window of time in which to enjoy this park.
The first day there were excited wildlife running all around. Not sure they enjoyed all the human intrusion after many months of being free from our species. I think this chipmunk was running to tell his friends of the impending invasion.
The gardens were not up to the normal standards due to their annuals being planted much later than they should have been. There were a few perennials to see but the woods were beautiful! I didn’t take the full drive this time because of increased pedestrian traffic. It was my understanding that the trails were open & normally this is where the foot traffic is so the cars are not impeded.
Sorry for the redundancy, but I do love Japanese Iris!
Praying everyone is doing OK in these very difficult & challenging times. God bless you all. Peace out.
Sorry about the quality. These tulips were taken years ago with a 35mm camera, 400 asa so they are grainy.
I had the pleasure to meet “Tiny Tim” of the “Tiptoe Through The Tulips” fame so many years ago. I had some vintage sheet music to give him. I was 17, my boyfriend at the time drove myself, my best friend & with my baby brother in tow, we went to his hotel to drop it off. He was signing autographs for people, we spoke for a while, in his “normal” voice. Calling my friend & I “Miss” all the time, that he does do. Very polite & complementary the entire time. I was shocked to learn that this hit was used in the horror film “Insidious,” which I have never seen. Not a real horror buff. I thought he was a kick. Someone very sweet, unique & entertaining.
