February 18 and 19, 2017 proved to be an unusually warm weekend on the lake shore with temperatures flirting with the 60 degree mark. I shot these pictures of the lighthouse at Pere Marquette beach Muskegon Michigan to celebrate the early arrival of “Spring” one month removed of the “scheduled” calendar date!

Use this link to watch my video of photos I took this past year along the shores of Pere Marquette Beach. About 2 1/2 minutes that demonstrate the amazing beauty of a West Michigan shoreline beach and the drama that develops.
I love flowers and plants, but a close second is photographing Lake Michigan on my frequent walks. Hope you enjoy a few of my recent pictures………….

Clouds and curling waves
Calm after chaos….storm has passed.
I try to amuse myself in winter so I don’t dwell on the cold conditions and the remote existence from gardening activities. Thought I would share some pictures from my winter “pun”-derland with you as we mark the days off the calendar until the arrival of spring!
Oh deer….these cute little guys stopped by my backyard for a “tree”-t…..they’re just trying to have a little “fawn”
Took this picture along the Lake Michigan shoreline. Thousands of sandy ice balls form when rolls of light snow are blown form the shore into water which is at or just below freezing. The rolls of snow are then tossed about in the chilly waters and mix with sand in the churning water, where wave action eventually shapes them into balls of sandy ice!
It’s bulb planting time! Time to put those miracle orbs in the earth for their long winter’s nap. I participated in the blessing of the bulbs and the Run for the Bulbs 5K in Holland Michigan this fall…..here are a few pictures to share from that beautiful October evening.
