Here, in this posting, are some recent photos taken in the Watershed that supports the life of the Gardens at Waters East. The one plant here that to me is most interesting is the Dwarf Lake Iris. It only grows in a very small area on the Door Peninsula and NO PLACE ELSE ON PLANET EARTH. A very special “gift” in our area.
Enjoy your visit to a special part of the watershed of the Gardens at Waters East.

NOTE: Summary Definition: - - Every photo posted on this Blog is always taken on the property of Gardens at Waters East – except those under the heading “Watershed”. The watershed is that area of surrounding land, water, and streams beyond the gardens that nurture the gardens and eventually, slowly move East where the waters find their way into Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes.
(For a more detailed explanation of the facts of this particular Great Lakes watershed, refer back to the posting on 12.16.16 Watershed #27)
