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.

A day in July.........

Today's garden. I just love the Day lilies and how they just brighten things up so much. I must get more. I need more orange ones.

Mrs Cardinal came for a visit, Mr was after her though and with Tristen outside they didn't stay around long. She got her tummy full though.

This guy was hungry enough to stick around even though Tristen was on the deck with me.

My wild flowers, this is the Milk Weed. I grow it for the butterflies, but the bees love it too

Just a day in the life of my garden........more tomorrow maybe. The bee balm is coming out and the butterfly weed is brilliant. Waiting to get some good shots of bees bugs and butterfly soon.
