My adventures in the woods, streams, rivers, fields, and lakes of Michigan

Aman Park, on the shores of the trillium seas 2013 part I

I went back through my archives and found the post that I did on the trillium in Aman Park last year, the date was April 15, 2012. What a difference a year makes! Last year I just caught the tail end of the trillium bloom, this year, nearly a month later, I hit the beginning of the bloom. And, I went crazy as far as the number of photos I shot, and was rewarded with too many very good photos for one post, I’ll have to do two for flowers, and maybe a third for birds. So, let’s get to the photos.

    • Thanks, it is nice to sit down in the sun, listen to birds singing, and breathe in air laden with the scent of flowers again!

    • Thanks, I know that there are many in the Pigeon River country, acres and acres of them, but I never see them as dense as in Aman Park.

  7. I have never seen that many Trilliums all together out here. Ours seem to be loners, popping up here and there by themselves. Yours are absolutely stunning, as are the other wildflowers.

    • Thanks Gunta, like I told Allen, that’s the only place that I’ve found in Michigan where the flowers are that close together.

  8. I am very fond of Trilliums so yes they are absolutely beautiful, but all of your spring bloom photos are beautiful. That is what I like about photography; it lets you capture the perfect moment and hold on to it.

  9. What a rare and beautiful sight. I can’t imagine seeing that many flowers in one spot! I see that you weren’t the only one taking pictures of them, and that doesn’t surprise me.

    • Thanks, I’ve never seen anything like that anyplace else in Michigan. All the flowers are common here, but not packed in together like they are in Aman Park. There were scores of professional photographers out there today, there were times when you had to wait in line.
