I love Springtime in Michigan.

From what was once my own back yard.
A beautiful Maple tree stood just for me.

Sunflowers are very striking flowers and fields of them are so impressive to behold. I have seen only two such fields that I can remember. I used to grow a row of Sunflowers in my garden along the edge where our small cornfield was. I really wish I would have taken pictures of that garden and many other things. Photography was not a priority back then and was expensive to develop.
My post is dedicated to Sunflowers but I am thinking about my cornfields right now. One year was dedicated to what I believe was the “Silver Queen” late corn, very sweet and tender, and another year we planted hulless popcorn. Never together because of possible cross-pollination issues. I have since found “hulless” at markets, but not often and none has ever been as tender as the popcorn we grew so many years ago. We hung the ears out to dry and then stored them in large mason jars still on the ears, kernels removed right before popping. Not sure of how to do this at first, we somehow dried them to perfection because they popped beautifully.
Land where most of my people are from.
These are pictures from a trip taken 10 years ago with my digital. It was very different from another trip taken there 20 years before that when our children were young and there were such nice bogs at the time. Could not find that area, if it even exists anymore. I have a few pictures taken with a disc camera from the 80’s of the bogs but if any of you are even familiar with that format, you know the quality was not very good. I had a 35 mm but purchased a Kodak disc because it was smaller, auto focus and didn’t want to risk my good camera in that environment of water and sand. I always took a cheap camera to the beach.
Good bye WordPress mentors and muses. Parting will be sorrowful indeed.
