Clear Blue Skies in Southwest Michigan


I was out showing houses just the other day, and I could not help but notice the beautiful clear blue skies.  In Michigan we tend to grow accustomed to an overcast sky most of the winter months, so when you have a day where you see these rich blue skies, it makes one stop for a minute.  As a child, evenI did not live in Michigan then,  I used to lay on the cool grass of early spring and look at the blue skies, and let my imagination run…

Clear blue skies inspire the imagination...

There is a freshness to the early days of spring, before the leaves come on the trees that makes the landscape very interesting.  We still in early April do not have the flowers, the green leaves that will soon cover the landscape, but the blue skies seem to lead the way.

As a Realtor that spends a lot of time on the road, through many weather condition through the different seasons, I like seeing a blue sky.  I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.  I long for the trees to be filled with leaves, and to hear the wind rustle as they move like ripples on the water.  Early spring is a wonderful time in Michigan, despite the still chilly weather. 

An old Irish blessing goes as follows: “May flowers always line your path and sunshine light

Clear blue skies are somewhat like the Irish blessing after a long bitter cold gray winter.

 your day.  May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.”

As a Southwest Michigan Realtor, I consider selling a home and getting homebuyers into the homes they are excited about is a way to help others achieve happiness.  It is kind of like the effect of a seing a blue sky on a clear day.  I hope if you are reading this, that you always remember to stop now and then and admire the beauty of a clear blue sky.  As a child I used to lay on the grass in the early days of spring, and watch clouds in the blue sky and let my imagination run…
