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.

Maple Leaves,,,,,,,,,,,,

I live in Michigan where we have a lot of Maple trees. There are a lot of deciduous trees in our area, the Northern part of Michigan. We also have conifers and when they blend together it makes a tapestry that is hard to better anywhere else. The Maples have such brilliant colour.


Maple Leaf

I watched a maple leaf’s descent to ground.
It’s downward swaying motion, every now
And then a pirouette without a sound
Until it came to rest so gently down.
I asked myself: A life so brief and yet
So beautiful, is life to be defined
By lasting time and taken for granted?
To go around in circles disinclined
To find profundity-Sad existence!
Ah! But the leaf, its purpose foreordained:
To live a measured life, a subsistence
Profound in many ways and unrestrained.
To waste a lengthy life, so incomplete
I’d sooner live my life a maple leaf.
Albert Ahearn


There are many other things that make our Fall so beautiful many other trees that have vivid colour that contrast with them.


All so beautiful

The colours so bright they look as though they have lights on them and when the sun is out it's spectacular.
