April - review 2012

This posting is meant as a “base line” in viewing the abundant flowers in the Gardens at Waters East.  These were taken in April to mark the early beginnings of the gardens for 2012.  As of today, many have now "passed on" for the year.  The many posting that will follow in the next weeks will showcase the bounty of the blossoms that are found here on the shores of Lake Michigan.

Do enjoy as the season begins to unfold.
