Spring Flowers - Watershed #12

The watershed for Gardens at Waters East covers a wide expanse of land reaching back inland from Lake Michigan.  To fully understand this ecosystem go back into the archives of this Blog and read any of the postings listed as “watershed”: especially the postings for  July 2, 2011 – Facts & Photos and anyone of the others that have been posted such as  Seen and Unseen – Watershed #3 posted on February 3, 2012 or the special one on rock formations titled Niagara Escarpment – Watershed #6 posted on July 21, 2012.

All of these blog postings will give you the proper perspective for viewing the following photos taken on trails in the areas covered in the many Watershed postings.

Enjoy some of the many awesome early Spring flowers found while hiking over the past month.

  1. It's a beautiful place and nice to see there are protected areas along the shore. The variety of the native flowers is amazing given the harsh winters. The iris is especially impressive.
