We visited a friends ranch close to the AuSable River & Forest. There was a private railway w/ Train. The top picture shows the rails and wild flowers that were growing along side the railroad tracks. The lily pond reflected the trees and plants like a mirror. It is difficult to determined the pond's surface versus the landscape.
When we were in Mio, Michigan. We visited several local Amish businesses. A bakery, hardware store and grocery store. We also stopped at a Maple Syrup store that was operated by the Amish. I did a collage of pictures to show the local Amish farms.

yester-year. A country home abandoned years ago; a barn with vines growing up the side. Two among the hundreds of decaying houses and barns along highway 61. There is a sadnesss that surrounds them. I always wonder what tales could be told about the farmers who once lived there.

The winter was harsh this year and showed no mercy. The cold weather turned the palm ferns brown. They were trimmed down to the core. Stripped of its green coat, it now stands small and bare. It will be late summer before the ferns will grow back to their original size.
