This week is looking bright with sunny days in the forecast! Although they have not started blooming yet, the orchards are beginning to bloom with white flowers.
Here’s an update where we’re seeing more flowers right now. Please remember that these are private orchards and it is best to see the flowers from the side of the road.
One good way to get there is County Road 633, which takes you through the heart of the county. The road meets the famous M-22 before rejoining the fruit-growing country north of Suttons Bay. Another route to note is County Road 645 through Cedar and back to the M22 near Good Harbor Bay.
Pro tip: keep your eyes peeled for white flowers!
Near Grand Traverse Bay, off M-72, you’ll find cherry blossoms when you least expect it. Continue past the Rove Estate and Jacob’s Farm to see the orchards coming into bloom.
Some beauties are blooming
Cherry blossoms aren’t the only thing growing in Traverse City. The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park is home to a variety of plants that make it a beautiful place to spend the day. Stop by their visitor center for travel information and check out their gift shop.
