Colorful Foliage and Flowers in Northern Michigan

A week ago my husband and I were in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We had six days mostly off the grid, reading and doing small projects. The day that we arrived it was raining. It rained a couple more days. One night we had thunder, lightening and a heavy down pour.

The benefit was all the bright green foliage, the wild flowers and the apple trees heavy with apples. When I took time to see the flowers, to pick apples and watch the birds flitting from tree to tree, I was refreshed.

For I know the Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods.
Whatever the Lord pleases, he does in heaven and on earth,
In the seas and all deeps.
He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth,
who makes lightnings for the rain and
brings forth the wind from his storehouses.

Psalm 135: 5-7

  1. Beautiful flowers. I just love how the rain sometimes helps us to see nature in full color. God is an amazing artist. Visiting from FMF

  2. I love what rain does to the foliage! I spent six weeks in Alaska this summer, and loved every day (even the rainy ones). Rain refreshes–just like the Holy Spirit! Your FMF neighbor :)!

  3. These photos are beautiful! And a great reminder of why we need the rain. It’s easy to complain about it but there are lots of benefits too!
