The Cereal City Real Estate Connection: Michael Delaware, REALTOR®, CRS (Troxel Realty Co. LLC)

Tulips are beginning to break through

We are still up and down in temperatures here in Michigan, but the tulips are finally starting to become more prominent and emerge from the ground.  To me this is the sure sign that spring is really here.  Winter has snapped back a few days this week with icy wind and cold that has robbed us again of those warm walks in the park.  Hoping the tulips rising from the ground will hold the sun a little closer and warm things up.  Here are a few I photographed at the Meijer Gardens.

Morning Sunrise
On Wednesday morning I was out on the road early and captured this moment of natures beauty. There was a shot I wanted to get a few moments later which would have shown a half moon shaped sun upside down, but I was driving and there was no where to… more

Want to know what daily life is like in the Northern Mid-West? Particularily in winter? Well Mother Nature bestows random work upon you without consulting your schedule, and shoveling snow becomes a routine part of life. Here is my driveway taken… more
An Old Hay Barn in a Snowy Field
I have a facination with old barns. To me they symbolize endurance of americana in a very deep way. Some are old and weathered, like this one in the photo. It makes you wonder on its age, and the people who built it. They always seem to last… more
Look who is under the desk!
I work at home in my office most of the time. My dog Blue is my constant companion. He comes and goes around the house, but his favorite spot to return to is at my feet under my desk. Sometimes I lose track of him, and think that he is not there… more
Blizzard Wednesday, Here We Go Again…
Yesterday I had to venture onto some slippery back road, and even got mired in a icy area at one point and had to get out of the car and knock the ice off my tires to be able to move. Yesterday, however, the skies were blue despite the cold. … more

Saying Goodbye to January 2014
I thought I would share my last photo taken in January 2014, as a sort of tribute and parting with a difficult month weather-wise. I took this photo after I had to trudge through knee deep snow to do a property evaluation on a foreclosure for a… more
Count the Deer in the Woods
I was traveling along a snow covered back country road a few days ago, and I looked up and there was a group of deer standing in the road about 100 yards ahead of me. I slowed down, and grabbed by camera but they had moved off into the woods. As I… more
