The beauty of Michigan is that you can experience a beautiful "Springtime in the Suburbs," wait a few weeks and then drive 5 hours north to the Lake Michigan shoreline and start all over again. The northern climate is about 3 weeks behind and offers an opportunity to "catch" any blooms that you missed the first time. I love the chance to appreciate the apple blossoms and magnolia trees in my second Spring. And look at this glorious weeping Shogetsu cherry against a bright blue sky. Magnificent.
