It is trillium time

My daughter and I had quite the adventure yesterday. We began with my post from yesterday and spent a nice part of the morning on the lakeshore.
On the way home we decided it would be a great day for a hike, so we stopped at Aman Park in Allendale. We hadn’t been there in quite a while, but we have fond memories of this place from visits in the past. I had forgotten about the amazing amount of trillium that bloom in the park every spring. I was so thankful I had my camera with me, and was able to capture some of the beauty of this time of the year in Michigan.┬áThere were many photographers out yesterday, and we even crossed paths with a painter. It really felt like a magical place to be.

Typical Michigan Weather

I have been thinking about buying one of those little cameras that does stop motion video, but decided on the much cheaper alternative of a 99 cent iPhone app. I set my phone up while I was at lunch today and let it record what a pretty typical Michigan day is like as far as the weather goes. This time lapse is over about two hours. I was hoping to record until the sky cleared completely, but my battery died. Overall, I give this app a good grade. It is worth playing around with some more.
