Where the North Begins and the Fine Fruit Grows
"Where the North Begins and the Fine Fruit Grows" is proclaimed on a billboard as you enter a town just a bit south of where I live. It's for certain that fruit growing is a huge part of life in west Michigan. This time of year, hillsides are blanketed with blooming trees.
Sometimes, they make the horizon completely "fluffy."
When I took these pictures, most of the blooms were cherries. Most of what is grown here are sour cherries, but also a lot of black sweet cherries.
The apples weren't in bloom yet, but the peaches were!
Hope you enjoyed the fruit tour.
