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.

Few more beauties...........

I have been so happy with the Day Lillies this year. They have added so much to my garden. I enjoy seeing them blooming, some of them more than once. They bloom for a good while in any case. Here are a few more that have bloomed the last few days. I fully intend to get more colours next year and stick with the things I know will last.


We are getting into the yellows and golds, the orange and reds of Fall. Still there are a few more things still hanging around yet. The Zinnia is another true and trusted (annual) Flower.
Look at it's beautiful heart
Tiger Lillies are prolific and I have to pull up so many every year. I do try to find them homes if I can, otherwise I put out on the side yard that does not get tended and let them grow wild.

I don't have a lot of luck with these(Astibe)this one seems to be flourishing hidden among the Bee Balm and ferns

I have been visited every day by the BlueJay family who nested under my window. They seem to be flourishing
I did manage on the one cool day to do a little weeding and things are not quite as bad as I thought. The garden certainly does need attention though. In the Fall, maybe then it will be pleasant out there. Things need to be moved and some needs to be removed.

(these are all my own pictures)
