We forget this treasure is in Irish Hills area of Michigan and when we remember, it is always such a treat. It is a winding trail thru lush Michigan trees, some old and huge and many plantings. Fall is coming, so leaves are just starting to turn, but I like the "green" and especially the birch trees. In the center are Domes with tropical vegetation, well worth the drive. (Will post those pix next!) #hiddengardens#irishhillsmichigan#msuhiddenlakegardens#fallinmichigan🍂🍁☕🍁🍂 #daytrip#pinetrees🌲 #fallcolors2017
✨ D I V I N E 🌲 P I N E ✨
It's been over a week since DPG and I'm still trying to integrate the experience and find words for it all, but I keep coming up short. I do know that I feel full and proud. I know people came, learned, connected, danced, grew, loved, healed, and opened themselves to an unknown experience. I know I raked, shoveled, chainsawed, burned, bruised, bled, got poison ivy, and earned a dark tan with some muscle weight to prepare the land for this 💪 and I know NONE of it would've been possible without the hardest working person I know, @feelslife, the unstoppable and badass @thirdcoastherbalcollective, our brother @tylerdaydreamingdawson, and family @jeremycaryl and @lunasuara. Y'all came in and helped in the most perfect ways and I can't thank you enough for all of your time and energy 💞 Enjoy this set of photos Phil + I took over the weekend, I'll be sharing more soon. .
