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.

March winds April showers
Bring forth May flowers

Some of our worst storms come in March. I am hoping they will just not happen this year. We have so much snow it just better help with the Lake levels after all this. The water table is low and has been for several years. People have got used to more beach front.
The snowdrops are one of the first Spring flowers, although we often see Crocus up close to the houses where its warm.

Well the sun came out for a short time today but it was so very cold. I could not stay out at all. I refilled the bird feeders but that was it. We cant get the snow off the deck because its so frozen. Its hard to clean off the mess from dogs and birds. The seeds freeze into the snow. We do try to keep it as clean as possible but its very hard.

The pansies come up blooming from under the snow

The pansies bloom through to the heat. Once it gets hot then they die off unless in a real shaded area. Soon after come the Violets. I chose this picture because of the cute little critter among the Violets

Soon, soon it will be here, it will be Spring.

Pretty pretty pictures, I like the snowdrops poking up surroundered in snow, I always get a kick out of the first spring flowers.

Thanks for the pretty pictures! I'm dreaming of Spring too. I'm usually already out in the garden by now, but this week we are having unseasonably cold temps. I woke to find snow on my deck this morning! Won't be long though!
