Summer is drawing to a close, and fall is nearly here. To make the most of this transitional period, before it becomes too cold, we’ve been trying to spend as much time as possible outside, enjoying the last few warm days here in Michigan. The leaves are already beginning to change colors, and the sun is setting sooner, so I wanted to squeeze in one last visit to a flower field before the end of the season and spend a day picking sunflowers. We took a trip to DeBucks Flower Farm, where they also have a corn maze, hay rides, and other fall themed activities, to pick some gorgeous Sunflowers, cosmos, zinnias, lavender, and other fall flowers.
Mackinac Island’s 71st Lilac Festival is one of the country’s most highly anticipated flower festivals. Explore the island and celebrate the iconic purple lilacs that were brought to this Northern Michigan paradise more than 250 years ago by French traders. Enjoy lilac-themed food and drink, gifts, and dozens of special events like tours, parades, races, art shows and crafts, and so much more.
