Exploring Fabius Township and St. Joseph County, Michigan, with side trips all over this Great Lakes state

Now this is bright!

Wow, I muttered, when this photo downloaded from the camera, my new Nikon.  Who saw that pink in the center of those New Guinea Impatiens?  Not you, I replied.  Right after a rain, these flowers are radiating color galore.  Imported from the tropics to the temperate zone and not an invasive species -- I give you the perfect potted, not to mention psychedelic, summer plant to cheer your day.

Speaking of color galore, try visiting City Daily Photo for all the responses to the August theme of Bright Colors.   This marvelous site inspired me to begin Fabius Day by Day.  It will give you an amazing trip around the world through the World Wide Web which is less exhausting than a plane or boat or bike or foot!
