Spring Time at the Old Mill

DSCN5757

Back in February, I posted pictures of this old mill and waterfall all covered in snow and ice.

The mill is looked after by a local history society, and the little island behind it, embraced by two arms of a river, is a nature reserve area with a many different kinds of trees and flowers – some common, some rare.  

We went for a walk there again this first Sunday in May, and that’s where my photos this week will be from. Spring is rather late this year, after a hard winter. The trees were only just at that first hint of green, but some of the early spring flowers at their finest.

the mill looks like a place I would walk often. I see what you mean about our Spring further along. Michigan looked like your pics about a month ago. We have had fantastic weather this year! very uncommon. I will check out your other blog to see the close-ups.

these photos are like stepping back in time if not for the cars in one of them. a lovely and peaceful spot, the photos tell it all.

This is lovely. Every iteration of this scene is like visual music.

Ginny said...

These are just lovely pictures! It is not a working mill? Do they ever turn it on, or is it not in good shape any more?

This is not a working mill. It is a sort of museum but only open to the public on special occasions. They have put in a new wheel to be able to run demonstrations of how it used to work. But they do not produce flour to sell.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.







My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
