The Michigan State versus Michigan rivalry goes back a long way. Back in 1898 when the schools played football for the first time there was a seed planted. Who was the dominant program in the state?

There’s no way you can attend a game or tailgate at Michigan State University without the appropriate apparel. You know what I’m talking about, right? Hey you, with the pink t-shirt on. For God’s sake, get some green and white on!!
Despite always saying that the only colors worth a dang around here are the Michigan State University colors of green and white, Greater Lansing has some pretty stunning foliage displays when Fall rolls around. While most folks will be sitting and driving in their car, we’re going to suggest that you get out and enjoy the beauty up close and personal. Here are suggestions for the best places to see those gorgeous reds, glorious oranges and vibrant yellows.
In the hustle and bustle of daily life with deadlines, overcommitments and trying to fulfill the needs of others we often forget that we need, for ourselves to stop (or at least slow down) and literally smell the flowers. Taking time for yourself, breathing deeply and getting in touch with nature is easy in Greater Lansing.

Do you ever feel like the years are starting to run together? Like, when your ten-year high school reunion invite arrives and you quickly run some numbers because you were convinced you were eighteen yesterday? Wait, that’s just me? Well, since I’m already sharing fun facts about myself, here’s another one; my driveway is lined with about 12 cherry blossom trees that I look forward to flowering every. single. year.
This is typically where I stop and take a moment to pay homage to the previous homeowners–may God bless their green thumbs.
Thankfully, for the both of us, spring’s beauty isn’t just limited to my driveway.
The entire Greater Lansing area has been popping with color for the past couple weeks and I find myself “oohing” and “ahhing” a little more than usual. From my daily lunchtime walk through downtown, to monitoring social media posts for the day, I am constantly reminded why this is one of my favorite times of the year.
Join me and take a few minutes to browse some of these gorgeous spring photos captured by fellow Instagram users. Let the petal peeping begin!
