This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.

Mini Roses............

Buy them at the grocery store and they bloom all summer. I used to put them in the ground but have found they do much better in a planter. I had to nurse a couple back to health and they are now ready for a permanent conatainer home. I use old pots or anything handy as a planter. I love this cast iron pot but can not use as a planter with dirt in because of the lack of drainage. I am thinking maybe I will fill it 1/2 full of gravel and then potting soil and put succulents in it next year.
Anyway..........this is one of my mini's that have thrived and are ready to go in the soil.
