In Michigan

Way up north the iris are blooming.

Paint is peeling

Hedges of spirea form walls of white

Iris was even growing out of spaces in the sidewalk.

Clematis climbed hidden back walls.

Toy soldiers in glass houses

Guarded the entrance to the murals of Diego Rivera.

The other side of thinking was exposed.

And there is a chance to relax

Way up north.

OM, looks as though there is a lot to see up North.
I'm glad you had a successful trip. Do have fun.

I had a very bad day (never argue with a 19 year old, they know everything) and "the other side of thinking" has me STILL laughing out loud. Thank you, Christopher, for the stress reducer!! (:

I am laughing out loud about the other side of thinking, Christopher! I couldn't wait to see your posts on the Spring Fling... glad that you were happy that you attended, and am looking forward to seeing that cameraful of photos posted sometime. :)
