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.

Robin Redbreast...........

Robin Redbreast.....cheeky chap
Will eat the lunch right from your lap.
Garden friend on spades he rests
Proudly showing his bright red breast.
Awaiting worm or maybe bug
Examines the ground the gardener's dug.
He fixes him with beady eye
unafraid, he does not fly.
Follows him to each new chore
Always hoping to find more.
He knows the man goes home to rest
and so he flits back to his nest.
Another day comes to its end
A day spent with his garden friend.
