God’s Country

I finally understand what that means.

Just had an excursion to Sault Ste. Marie, ON, and it was my first trip through Northern Michigan.

What a beautiful area. For miles, the highway was lined with bright pines and spruce, native birch, red-twig dogwood and numerous other species of trees just starting to leaf out. As far as the eye could see, it was stunning. And if it’s stunning this time of year, I can only imagine what it would look like in full bloom through the summer or as the brilliant shades of fall begin to develop.

An overcast day, even the clouds were something to look at. Billowing white waves of marshmallow cream. I’ve never seen clouds look so comforting, or inviting – as if you could snuggle in and have the best sleep you have ever had.

Yes, this is truly God’s Country. And if I had my way, Heaven would look like Northern Michigan.

I'm a Horticulturalist, Master Gardener and member of the Garden Writers Association who enjoys playing in the dirt and experimenting with different veggies, plants and flowers in my Zone 5 garden. Check out my website http://www.wowmygarden.ca With a recent addition of a greenhouse, my newest passion is growing-your-own. And what fun that is. Yes, there's the odd failure, but there's nothing quite as satisfying as walking through the veggie patch collecting dinner.
