The very last slow Sunday before the start of summer tourist season finds some of us gathering at Kathy and Dave Coveyou’s farm for an impromptu photo shoot and last minute musings about our exciting roller coaster life styles, the feast or famine cycles of farming in Northern Michigan. Represented are: Coveyou Scenic Farm Market, Farmer White’s, Dhaseleer Farm and Pond Hill Farm.
Spring was long under way while I was visiting the south of Germany, enjoying lots of white asparagus sold out of very solid looking road side stands with porta potties attached… wish I had a photo.
I do however have a photo of the very solid country architecture throughout the Chiemgau, which is where the reknown Land Artist Nils-Udo lives and works. A most inspiring landscape undisturbed by whatever shapes man saw fit to add to it. Ultimate harmony between nature and the man made.
Meanwhile, back at the farm, this was getting built by Carl and Irah. You guessed it. It will be used to show wedding guests around the farm while the bride and groom are having their pictures taken.
When I came home to very cold temps in Northern Michigan I found this by the lake in search of spring!
…and this in our yard.
All very sparse after rich bloom in Germany.
Yet a week later my second SPRING is prying its way in on our fields.
Stop in any time!
