They haven’t appeared quite yet — those magical first signs that spring has arrived. So our Michigan bed and breakfast inns got together some of their favorite early-springtime photos to remind you to keep the faith: the season is almost here.
At Willow Pond B&B, Fenwick
Dewey Lake Manor, Brooklyn
Pussy Willows will soon be on display at Dewey Lake Manor. Did you know their slim, white flowers have no petals? Instead, the blossoms are soft, furry cylinders called catkins.
Prairieside Suites, Grandville
Yellow Forsythia are among the very first flowering shrubs to say hello to spring. Where you see Forsythia today, you’ll see Lilacs tomorrow, and that’s a promise.
About spring, Anne Rivers Siddons wrote this in “The House Next Door”:
Forsythia that I thought had been dozed into oblivion sprang up
and misted the foundations with lemon icing I yearn for all winter.
Victoria Resort B&B, South Haven
