Eastern Redbud Blooming in Michigan by Lee Rentz
A Michpics reader shared that the blooming of redbuds was one of her favorite signs of Spring & I heartily agree!
Lee got this shot of Eastern Redbud (Cercis canadensis) in bloom last week. For sure check out his blog for some great travel stories including a Michigan bear encounter & view and purchase his work on his website.
Tahquamenon Falls in Michigan’s UP by Tom Clark
Tom swung by Tahquamenon Falls over the weekend and shares:
Amazing! I have never seen it with such a large volume and flow as today. It’s supplied by the spring melt-off and rain. Another benefit of the run-off is the intensity of color – again, never seen such deep rich color. That is why it’s aptly referred to as “root beer falls”.
Indeed!! See more in Tom’s UP Trip with Dave – April 2022 gallery on Flickr & view & purchase his work on his website.
Much more from Tahquamenon Falls on Michigan in Pictures!
Melting by Julie
mLIve’s Mark Torregrossa shares that although it might be a little cool today, much of Michigan’s lower peninsula will leap into the 70s and even low 80s on Saturday. In the Upper Peninsula and within a few miles of a Great Lake, you’ll only have temps in the 60s. Still, nothing to sneeze at right?
Julie got this great shot of the melting ice at Mackinac last April. See more in her Spring & Summer gallery on Flickr.
Crocuses by Brooke Pennington
You might think that after thousands of years of coming up too soon and getting frozen, the crocus family would have had a little sense knocked into it.
With a cold weekend ahead, I can’t help think about the bold crocuses. Stay warm, my purple pals!!
I’ve shared this stunning shot by Brooke before, and when it came up in my memories I had to share it again! More from Brooke on Flickr.
Michigan Spring?!? by Michelle Leale
I love a good April Fools, but I just don’t seem to have it in me this year. You can check out some of my (and others) Michigan April Fools pics from years past though.
Speaking of April Foolishness, the 4″ of snow outside is testing my patience!! Michelle took this back in April of 2018. See the latest on her Flickr & have a great weekend!
The first crocuses I’ve seen this spring by Bill Dolak
While I’m still waiting to see the first crocus here in Traverse City, Bill saw some on Friday in Kalamazoo. How about you – any crocuses or springy signs in your neck of Michigan??
Head over to Bill’s Flickr to see his latest & have an awesome week everyone!
Get your Spring on with Michigan in Pictures!
Robin by Charles Bonham
I saw a robin yesterday & have decided that Spring would be a very good idea. Who’s with me?
I know this guy Charles caught at Kensington Metropark the other day is! Head over to Charles’s Flickr for more including a few more great bird shots!
More birds & more Spring on Michigan in Pictures.
Looking Through to Another Time by Anna Newhouse
Sometimes I save photos I feature on Michigan in Pictures to a folder that changes my computer background every day. This one by Anna from 5 years back has always been one of my favorites.
You can see more in Anna’s My 365 Photo Challenge gallery.
I Spy You Both…. by Julie

See more in Julie’s Wildlife gallery & stay curious people!!
Dutchman’s breeches by William Dolak
Bill shared this photo last week in the Michigan in Pictures group on Facebook & writes:
Dicentra cucullaria, or Dutchman’s breeches, is a perennial herbaceous plant, native to rich woods of eastern North America, with a disjunct population in the Columbia Basin.
The common name Dutchman’s breeches derives from their white flowers that look like white breeches.
