Macro Monday - Spring Delights

I had quite a grand adventure the last couple of days and plan on going an another tomorrow. The downside is I am completely worn out and not feeling very much like writing. I hope you don't mind if I hold off on the story telling until later this week and just share a few photos of our spring delights blooming in southwest Michigan. Some of these photos are for Macro Monday. For more macro entries, please visit http://lisaschaos.com/.

Cherry blossoms

Crab Apple blossoms

A different Crab Apple tree blooming.

Lilac... Mmm does this ever smell divine.

Pheasant Eye Daffodil

Not really a hardy MI plant but blooming on my deck is this Fuchsia.

Jessica, you are SO far ahead of us in the blooming end of things. Not even the dandelions are in flower yet. The black flies, however, are already in full swing.

Your photos are lovely.
