Last week, my sister came with her daughter, and we three went on a little road trip--a one-day adventure; sailing across the ribbon of silvery interstate, on a gorgeous spring day that was sparkling with bright blue skies and green, velvety grass, colorful blooms on the trees and everywhere.
Where did we go? To a haven that showcases spring like no other.
To a magical little town near the western shore of the peninsula that is Michigan; two and a half hours due west of my home..."Tulip Town", as it's called.
There was a little municipal parking lot that we pulled into, and we got out and grabbed our cameras...and I was snappin' before we ever left the parking lot. Why?
My niece, Katie, is quite a photographer herself, isn't she adorable?
Small town America at her best...
I thought I'd start my series on Holland out with this sweet little cottage...
Knowing you'd appreciate this tiny little cottage, too.
Isn't she a beauty?
A tiny, petite little charmer, with plenty of attention to detail--from her homemade picket fence, to her shutters and all the plantings around her.
I have more, much more, to show you and hope that my photos and story might lure you to this town in the spring, soon, to enjoy the magic of spring's best: tulips.
So come back and see me!
I'll be back soon with more of Holland, Michigan, a jewel that just sparkles in Michigan...
