the yellows of summer for ABC Wednesday








 Last round of ABC Wedneday, Y fell in winter,  in January in fact, and I showed you the yellow glow of kitchen lights viewed from the outside on a cold winter day.  Now I take You on a tour of yellows from the warm days of late June on Lake Michigan.

Did I tell you that this western shore of Michigan (the eastern shore of the lake) is called the Third Coast?  The other two coasts may have their New Yorks and Montereys, but our coast has the largest collection of fresh water dunes in the world according to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.  Learn more about all the shores of Lake Michigan in this Wikipedia article.

  18. Beautiful photos! Love your yellows!

    I had to laugh at myself trying to figure out your western/eastern shore. Even though I live on the south shore of Lake Ontario which is on north here since I live in New York State. If north/south can be done here, west/east can be done there.

  19. Lots of lovely yellows, but of course I love the huggable golden dogs in your header! Good to see one golden dog in your collage, of course. Great stuff, Helen. Thanks!
