It was (near) Mother's Day weekend and I had made an impromptu visit to the north country to see my mom. I was surprised, actually, that the trees were still so bare and the air still so chilly but it was enjoyable nonetheless. These particular forest photos are from some land that is known for sinkholes and giant cracks in the ground near Posen, Michigan in the northeastern Lower Peninsula. Many plants were still asleep and waiting for more sunshine, but there were a few trillium flowers in bloom. Enjoy the forest where you are, and if you can't, I hope you enjoy these photos.
