Winter's tree with lights on S. Main

Winter's Redbud at 838 South Main Street

I Spy: March 2014

by by Sally Bjork

From the April, 2014 issue

"I Spy Winter's redbud at 838 South Main Street," writes Lori K. Wintermeyer, "at the Arcadian II Boutique"--which used to be Wintermeyer's Ann Arbor Framing Co. It's "decorated with red lights at Christmas time," writes Lisa Renko of Saline, but it's "still lighting up the nights!" Kathy Wirstrom says it's "the loveliest landmark ever!" And Joseph L. Gelinas simply calls it "Cool. :)"

"The lights are "perfectly spaced all the way up to its topmost branches--a real work of art," writes Linore Latham. It's "spectacular," writes Bruce Conforth. "I can never imagine how the lights are put on it." Arcadian Antiques hires McFarland Tree Service to install and maintain them. Julie Weatherbee, who lives across the street, writes that "watching them put the lights up and fixing the ones that aren't working has provided a lot of entertainment over the last few years."

Twenty-one entries correctly identified "winter's redbud." Our winner, drawn from among the correct entries, is Linda Bankauskas of Ann Arbor. She'll enjoy her $25 gift certificate at Cafe Felix.

To enter this month's contest, use the photo and clue on the Back Page of the April issue to identify the scene, then follow the instructions at the bottom of the page.    (end of article)
