Charlevoix is known for its 5 miles of 60,000 colorful petunias and each May, right before Memorial Day, the town comes together and plants the flowers. It was my father-in-law’s idea, and our family’s and town’s project. The petunias arrive on semi trucks the day before planting day and 1/2 (the North side of town) are dropped off on my inlaw’s front lawn where he cares for them until they are divided up and organized for distribution. My friend Margie Guyot and I took advantage of the “sea of color” and set up our easels and painted them under the crab apple trees before they were loaded up on trailers to be planted downtown!

Also available as a note card and magnet.
