Spring in Michigan

Sunday, May 17th, 2009

Spring in Michigan is very soft and feminine. I noticed this after visiting Houston, Texas in April, and then returning to the soft, almost foam-like flowering of trees and bushes in soft colors here in Lansing, Michigan.


I will be at the East Lansing Art Festival again today, helping my friend Altu in her food booth. Although I did not even leave the booth yesterday, I heard music from the main stage, and many friends came by to say hello. This is the first outdoor festival of our year, and it was a celebration that we finally made it through snow season again. This year was harder than many, and the celebration feels big.

I took a photo of a typical Michigan flowering fruit tree a week ago. It was Mother’s Day and I was at Woldumar Nature Center listening to Brian and other friends play music for a special event. Enjoy the flowers as I serve up the best food in Lansing…

Oh… and today is Norwegian Independence Day. Happy Day to all Norwegians and those of Norwegian descent!
