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.

Welcome to my Garden in May............

Its been a very long time coming but the garden is waking up at last. May, and nothing planted yet. We are not supposed to plant till the end of May but most years I have stuff in by mid April. This year I haven't even finished the clean up yet. I am working on it though a little at a time. This old body needs exercise after the long winter basically vegging. So nice to be out in the air.
Its a miracle what a few days can do. A little rain and then a lot of sun yesterday got things going really well.

My Mini daffs are out and looking happy and I just love this one with all the petals.

Then there is the squirrels........Bud next door set his live traps and has captured and (he says) relocated two black ones. This guy pesters me every day, and sneaks up to see if I am looking before he gets into snacking

I sort of hope Bud does not capture him, he is a bit of a lad.

pretty, pretty flowers. I love the daffodils all dripping with raindrops. Seeing the color come into the garden is one of the best parts of spring. Enjoy!

Blue and yellow flowers are my favourites, the one with all the extra bits is very stunning.

Lavender Cottage said...

Your double daffodil is a beauty.
I may be relocating a few squirrels myself this summer; they seem to breed like rabbits.

Your photos are beautiful. Spring is a miracle I think with all the regrowth of plant life. I hope you enjoy the weekend. Blessings, Pamela
