Signs of Spring

Spring was slow in arriving to Northern Michigan this year, but with near-90 degree temperatures on the heels of a lovely Memorial Day weekend, the signs are everywhere.

Spring moves swiftly through the woods and waterways, leaving an abundance of green in her path and rousing wild mushrooms and watercress and leeks from their winter dormancy.

She dances across orchards and farmland, peppering the landscape with blossoms and blooms and bursts of bright color.

Finally, she settles in over our towns, transforming them into bustling resorts and filling the American Spoon stores and Café with friends new and old. As spring melts into summer, we look forward to welcoming you back to this special place and to sharing the preserved bounty of our beloved Northern Fruitlands.
