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.

My Forsythia arch coming along nice. Have not had a chance to get out and tidy and secure it yet. Will be sort of nice in a couple years.

If you look close you may see a birds bum.......I put that wreath temporarily on the side of the arch that holds the swing. I then put an iron pot holder in the center that secured it to the trellis. So.......I thought, maybe some ivy would look OK in it. Next thing I know a flock of Blue Jays claim it and a pair of them are building a nest in it. Well I had to take down the swing. I could just see that, Tristen swinging and the babies bouncing...........I will try to keep this information from Tristen so he leaves them alone. Although I think the Blue Jays will take care of themselves I prefer not to have the hassle. They don't mind me in the garden and as long as there is no eye contact, they carry on, otherwise they pretend they are just sitting in the bush for no other reason.

In fact I was sitting on the deck drinking some water and one of them came to the feeder. He stood and stared at me as if to say "Ya got a problem with this?".....I looked away and he stuffed his face and took food to the Mrs. feeding her in the tree. We must have reached an understanding because he came back and ignored me. He is a big bird up close with a very sharp beak. Meanwhile, on the front porch.......

Mrs Robin is recycling a previous years nest. I cant catch her in it to take a picture but she seems to be already feeding someone. I cant believe she has even laid eggs yet. We have two functioning Robins nests on the front porch in the vines. The Jays nested by our kitchen window last year. I don't know where the Cardinal is yet.
My Dandelions are doing well

Your dandelions are doing well! LOL! Love all the pictures ;o) We have tones of birds around us, but I haven't seen any nests yet this year. I just changed where I put our feeders and the birds still haven't found it! I hope they do soon! Take Care ;o)
