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.
... I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.......Psalm23:6

The Chaffinch in the Cherry Tree......


A man may sing in the morning
A woman may sing at night
And a dog may sing when the silver ring
Of the moon is high and bright
In the stealthy hour of twilight
The Nightjar churns his song
But the Chaffinch in the Cherry tree
He sings the whole day long......

A man may sing for his supper
A woman may sing for love
And a dog may sing for the silver ring
That hangs in the sky above
The strident song of the Stormcock
Goes out a song of strife
But the Chaffinch in the Cherry tree he sings for the joy of life

A man may sing from a song book
A woman may scale a score
And a dog may sing as his sires have sung
For a thousand years before
A Blackbird sings with ardour
A Nightingale with art
But a chaffinch in the Cherry tree He sings with all his heart

What a lovely robin is!
His eye is so cute, which make me smile.
