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.

Bringing in the herbs.......................


When I bought herbs in the Spring, the garden center told me that a lot of them are annuals. So I planted those I knew were perennial (remind me next year to contain them before they take over) and the others I left in pots. Well, last year I brought inside a lot of nice plants so that I could try to save them. Ivy, geraniums and a couple of others including some nice Boston Ferns. I had no luck what ever. They died.
This year I have only brought in the house plants that I put out in the Spring. Those I know will live. They get a real boost from being outside and are ready to go out again in the Spring.
Well I brought in the herbs. Its not looking good at this point but I am nursing 3 or 4. The first one above and these two.


and one that is barely hanging on and there is nothing to show. I have a chive that is spindly and we shall see in a month or two how many are left.
