Photos: Michigan's orchards, vineyards, and Christmas tree farms in winter

With much of the national political attention focused on the Great Lakes State because of next week's Michigan Primary, I thought this evening would be a good time to post some photographs from my trip there last month.

Southwestern Michigan--all of these pictures were taken in Van Buren County--is wine country.

You can find apple trees there and...

Many of the Christmas trees on display in homes where I live, the Chicago area, come from Michigan.
