Northern Michigan Outdoors: Suttons Bay Garden Walk

Northern Michigan Outdoors: When Traverse Magazine and MyNorth Media's Marketing Director Rachel North wanders into her Suttons Bay garden, her walk suddenly blooms with nostalgia.

"My great weekend treat is to take my coffee cup into the garden for discovery. The visions inspire the voices of past experiences to rise to the forefront of my mind's eye. A poppy plant has reseeded in a spot that will be too shady for it and hide its blooms from view. Some phlox have escaped their bed for the sedum plot. And I hear the owner of the Edgewater Inn in Cleveland saying, 'Any plant in the wrong spot is a weed.'"

Hop on the path with Rachel in this blog post complete with photos and memories of springs past.
