I used to live in the southern US but now live in Northern Indiana and was wondering if wildflower fields will be blooming here and in Michigan by early May (I was hoping to do some rural exploring the first weekend of May). I have heard that they bloom later in northern areas, but I wasn't sure how "north" northern is. If you could let me know, that would be great. Thank you very much.
