Wildflowers by the Lake

Posted by on in General

For those of us who enjoy nature walks by the lake, May is the perfect month to indulge in them. When it’s not raining, May weather is perfect for a lakeside hike or a stroll.

It’s spring! The world has that blue-sky, grass-green look to it that’s part and parcel of the burgeoning life and renewal that’s happening all around us. It’s the ideal time to observe the beauty of nature by the lake, particularly the wildflowers, which burst into bloom all across the United States throughout the month of May.
