Mackinac Island Lilac Festival Weekend
The woods of Mackinac Island pull me in,
Along the trails of never ending
Wild Forget Me Not's,
A Lilly of sorts? Not sure exactly
which one this is,
Happened upon Me Lady's Yellow Slipper's,
I Have never in my life seen the
Yellow Slipper's in the wild,
these beauties are along every trail side, Amazing!!!!
Here in southern Michigan,
the early spring wildflowers are done,
on the island they are either
still in bloom or just finishing,
Forget Me Not's,
The discovery of an ancient
Native burial grounds marked with
This is the road where the local's say you can see
Civil War Soldiers walking in the wood
at dusk !
Every private home, cottage or
Inn has a Lilac shrub,
Of course our Lilac's here
finished about two weeks ago,
The Island Lac's are still in full bloom,
for the celebration of the Lilac Festival,
I found a rock altar along the outer island trail,
The one on the left is my creation,
You will find these all along the island trails,
Along the trail, looking at the
Round Island Light House,
This is the same Romantic Island
from the movie "Somewhere In Time"
when Ellyse and Richard row out to it.........
such a romantic Island!
