I found great variety among the trees in the orchards. Some are young, delicate, and fragile.
Others, thick and knobby, show their age.
But what I enjoy most about orchards in the winter is the stark contrast they make against the white snow.
The shadows they cast on sunny days delight me. Can spring be far off?
The symmetry of the orchards create patterns that go on and on over the hills of Leelanau.
These orchard vistas remind me of the importance of fruit farming in our beautiful county.
