We visited the Meijer Gardens near Grand Rapids, Michigan.
One of the highlights of the gardens is this 30 foot tall horse,
one of the reasons I wanted to visit.
A big spring!

Back home in the height of summer
and seeing lots of bugs
This angry looking fellow was trapped inside an empty flowerpot
and when I dumped him out, he wasn't too happy.
But he found his way to the grass & escaped.
I spotted this hummingbird moth on some bee balm along the trails.
Bee balm, or monarda, is quite enticing to lots of insects.
This pretty ladybug was checking out the blooming milkweed.
Daddy Longlegs spider climbing on stinging nettle.
