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.

Birds of a Feather.........

Today is bitter cold and a new dusting of snow. The squirrels came in a herd it seems. Spent a lot of time waving stuff out the windows and chasing them away so the birds could feed.
Mr and Mrs C came in and a couple of Blue Jays but mostly the Chickadees. The squirrels kept most away. I am going to have to do something about that. Get something to scare them. I wonder what they do not like in the way of noise. Hmmmmmmm.
Well I did manage a few pictures. So here are a few for today. The dried up Hydrangea still looks beautiful



A few seeds left for birds.


Here she is, a bit worried about the squirrels and plotting their demise.


Plotting from a different angle...........

The Blue Jay got in after I scrammed the squirrels


So here is Mr C who came looking for Mrs


The same birds come every day. Some days I am lucky to see someone different. The squirrels have passed the news and I think every one of them within a block or two come to check out the feeders. When I scram them they run in all directions along the wires and over tree tops. They are soon back though.

Linking up with NatureFootstep meme........Thank you for hosting.

Linking with Our world Tuesday....and to the hosts Happy new year.

Fabulous texture on the 1st two shots - but nothing beats the RED of that Cardinal! Possibly because they don't appear downunder ...
