You can tell it is Winter!!
You may ask - - how can you tell this? Very easy, it is obvious. This is when I do more postings on the Blog. It is my way of winter gardening jajaja!!! Can not do much outside.
The snow is on the ground, all is white, the weather is cold, winds blow strong and noting is growing outside.
So there are a few more postings at this time of year than normal!!!

These are photos taken of the one and only Yucca plant in the gardens. It always looks to me like it belongs in a desert and not growing in the climate of Lake Michigan. But it does well here as you can see.
( Yucca -- from the dictionary - - a plant of the agave family with stiff sword-like leaves and spikes of white bell-shaped flowers that are dependent upon the yucca moth for fertilization, found especially in warm regions of North America and Mexico. )
As you can see, it is still growing tall.
Blooms are starting.
Someone else is enjoying the flowers.

Ryan Park is small nature preserve near to the Gardens at Waters East. It is about five miles west of the gardens. On the day I was there, I hiked a two mile trail. As you can see the colors are all soft yellows. Nice and bright beneath the canopy of leaves.
A reminder here of what life was like only a few short weeks ago – before the SNOW!
A beautiful place to walk!
Love finding mushrooms.

I have no idea how this got there -
but sometime in the pass someone went a little crazy!
Hope you enjoyed the hike - I did!
