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.

Another day in the garden.................

Well not a lot going on out there really. I now have so much work to do but its been too hot. My potted plants have come to the end of their life really. I usually replace them but its not worth it yet. Everything just shrivels up. We need rain bad. Anyway, here are a few pictures of whats going on at the moment. The Day lilies are doing well. I have not seen any butterflies this year. Only one white one.

This little critter came to see me. It was cute watching his eyes move

I love this colour, these are in my neighbours garden. I took this picture because mine has not bloomed yet

This is a white bloom on one of my Hosta plants. Most of them are a lavender colour

I love the colour on these Day Lilies. I was very happy with all of them this year. I bought a couple of new ones and I think that I will get more, they do so well.

My fish are doing well. Getting quite fat. I hope they live another year. They have good hiding places in the pond now and they play. If they live another year I may even give them names.

I need to get some plant stakes, maybe this weekend. Right now everything is floppy and I just cant get out there while its so hot. Its bad enough just getting everything watered. So enjoy these few pictures I am ready for something new...........not really much coming on. The next thing looks like it will be daisies, the yellow ones and that takes us into the Autumn shades. Sigh.........I hope ita a long cool Autumn.

I haven't been able to get out much here either because of the humidity. That probably why I do so much "gardening" inside, LOL, of course, I mean making the flowers!

I love your garden pictures! I know somethings have died off for me this year. It has been a weird season, starting off with so much rain, now dry and hot. I'm thankful I have alot of hostas, they are easy to take care of ;o) LOL! (love the fish!)

Lovely pics yet again. I hope you get some rain soon. We've had 3 weeks of scorching sunshine but today has been full of thunder, lightning and at last rain!
