Saugatuck, Michigan



"Sit quietly, doing nothing. Spring comes and the grasses grow by themselves."
                                                                                                                 --- John Lennon


"I would not exchange my leisure hours for all the wealth in the world."  --- Sting

Surprise and anticipation is everywhere with the ice completely melting on the Big Lake, boats out fishing for perch, smelt, salmon, the first crocus poking through the last snowfall. We love that it’s lighter later, the robins are back, wild asparagus appears in our Frittatas, sautéed morels from the shadows appear on crostini, an daffodils begin to dance across spring green lawns as young leaves start to unfurl. Then one day Spring pops and Saugatuck 's skies become a fairyland with flowering apple, pear, crabapple, peach, cherry, dogwood and lilac trees welcoming all. They can make us giddy for weeks . . . til romance is everywhere. Masses of tulips of every hue engulf Holland and stores are getting their Spring sprucing up. Warm breezes carry The Sounds of Saugatuck so that jazz in the air leaves a light hearted optimism behind.
