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.
... I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.......Psalm23:6

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. We have it now and I am not sure that it's going to leave for awhile. I suppose I should just enjoy a White Christmas? It's just such a pain to drive in.
I went outside to see if I could get any good pictures but really........nothing.
The birds feeders had hats on.

The front garden didn't yield anything spectacular either.


So I came inside and was working on some turkey stew. The left over turkey from Thanksgiving usually ends in a stew and it is always so good. I needed the room in the freezer so.........two cartons of Chicken broth. Salt and some onion/garlic salt, some left over soup from yesterday (Bean and bacon) and a large can of chunky mixed vegetables.I also put in two cans of butter beans, I love butter beans. I added some frozen beans that had just a few left in the packet and some frozen peas. I also threw in a can of corn..............I let that cook all day.


By the time it was ready I just had to add a little more salt and it was good to go. Left over crusty bread and yummy creamy butter. It made a great meal for a cold day and enough left for tomorrow

Wow - that looks like a lot of snow. We haven't had any yet, but had a lot of rain over the weekend. I wonder if we'll have a mild winter like last year?

Janice, It looks so beautiful in your garden. I love the look of snow. I liked seeing your Christmas cactus and violet too. You obviously have a green thumb!
