The Flowers of Door County

For whatever reason, and even the locals do not know, the flowers in Door County, Wisconsin, are especially lush this season. One resident said everything came up large and full. We benefited from the beautiful blooms. I found myself snapping pictures of the landscaping instead of Lake Michigan and Green Bay.
The flowers are particularly charming against the backdrop of white picket fences and arbors which are common in the village of Fish Creek.

It truly was a relaxing escape to Door County. I could not help but take notes as research for a new book. It is an inspiring place. If you have not yet read my latest Door County love story, find it on


DOOR COUNTY ESCAPE is available in soft cover or Kindle e-book format for Kindle reader, PC or I-phone apps. A delightful page turner for your summer escape! Suitable for young adults.
