The Fallasburg Arts & Crafts Festival was just a few weeks ago at the end of September. I published a post about it and I sure hope you got an opportunity to attend. It was a gorgeous weekend here in Western Michigan. We had temperatures in the high 70's and sitting  in the sun, it felt more like 85 degrees. I will try to give you a synopsis of the Festival in case you didn't make it to this premier Arts & Crafts Festival here in Kent County.  My brief video is a tour of some of the highlights:   There is lots of parking in a vacant adjacent field, where traffic is coming and goingall weekend.  We made a few stops on the way, as garage sales and tag sales are a big attraction for all the traffic  heading to the Festival. The huge stone arches mark the entrance to the park.  The booths a...

I love the Pre-Fall Season. Here in Michigan, the days are usually warm, 60-70 degrees, with a slight nip in the breeze. It gets colder at night but when the sun is shining, it is perfect weather.  At the zenith of this season,  comes the Fallasburg Fall Festival in Lowell, Michigan. It is held at Kent County's Fallasburg Park off Lincoln Lake Road north of Lowell. This is a large, rambling park with a shelter house, one of 2 wooden covered wooden  bridges in Kent County, and rolling hills full of trees and park settings. Very pretty, very scenic, a perfect place to have a festival of the arts.  The Lowell Area Arts Council holds their Fallasburg Fall Festival here in late September. This year is the 40th festival celebrating arts & crafts. I have been going since the crowds were thin a...

There are many properties for sale with acreage.  If you have been considering purchasing that dream home with acres to roam, now might be a great time to buy.  Prices have continued to come down over the past several months and maybe what used to be, not in your price range may now be actually quite affordable.

If you live where spring flowering bulbs enchant the landscape, now is the perfect time to plant some color.  Who can resist a home with drifts of tulips or daffodils welcoming them to the front door?My favorite bulb is a mini-daffodil named Tete a Tete.  (Photo from the Breck's web site.)  It's a cheerful early bloomer that's about 6 inches tall.  Its petite size and short stem prevent it from flopping over after a rain.  You won't have to cope with butt-ugly dying leaves until 4th of July, either.  The leaves just disappear after the blooms die.Bulbs have the greatest impact when planted in large groups, 50 or more.  They look worst when they're lined up single file like soldiers.  Follow the store's guide for the depth of the planting hole.  It varies with the size/type of the bulb. ...
