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.

A few more nice days..............then?

The Bee's are still busy. It has been raining on and off the last couple of days. I have left my house plants outside to get a last good water from real rain water. I think the house water is not so good for them. They are destined to come inside on this coming weekend.
Meanwhile there is not really a whole lot going on in the garden that we can see. Bit by bit it's making itself ready for winter. That's not far off for us now. The snow is falling in the Upper Peninsula, but so far we have only had some thick rain. The Asters are still looking good.


The birds are eating as much as they can, I hope they get fat and sassy for winter. There will always be food for them here. The little house finches are coming back. I have not seen them all summer

The squirrels are double checking their hiding places.
Chickadee's raise their family here and so do the Bluejays and Cardinals. They stick around all year. Another frequent visitor is the Mourning Dove. This Chickadee kept it's back to me so would not pose.


These yellow beauties I found down the alley when Tristen and me went for a walk. I will have to get some if they do this well for so long.
Another thing in our alley left over from another time


This shed, being used as a garage is left over from the days when they had horses in town. there are still quite a few around. I should take some time and go out and picture them while they are still here.
