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.

Mr Cardinal......

Mr Cardinal came today and it was snowing. He sure shows up nice against the snow. We are supposed to get a real winter storm tonight through tomorrow. We shall see what happens. Meanwhile I put out a lot of food, but the squirrels are still out eating their hearts out instead of sleeping. Darn things. Well, they are cute but...........I want bird pictures and I missed the Tufted Titmouse this morning.

The other pretty visitor today


The Red Bellied Woodpecker. No idea why its called that? I do not see a red belly only a red head. He is becoming a regular visitor. There were two small woodpeckers this morning but I didn't get pictures because the dogs were outside at the time.

Linking up with Mosaic Monday at the Little Red House.
I have missed joining up with Mosaic Monday so I am glad to be back.

I am linking up with Paying ready intention

I just love it when all the blogs start showing their little bird visitors after Christmas! How pretty to see the birds with the snow coming down around them. I very much enjoyed your mosaics!

Great shots of the of the Cardinal and Redbellied. I have seen their redbellies, usually seen while they are in flight. Thanks for sharing, great post.

Great shots of the birds against the snow! They sure stand out against that background don't they?

Great winter bird images and oh I do know what you mean...those pesky Squirrels, but since they do not hibernate...they will thieve all winter, all seasons;')~
