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.

Beginning of July.....

Its the beginning of July. My pictures on my computers is all messed up and I lost all my stuff. I got a lot of it back so I guess that's OK. Just wasted a lot of time that's all. I have been busy outside but its so hot I didnt get a lot accomplished. Anyway here are a few pictures.

first off another weed that I have let grow. Its on the edge of the garden so its not going to get in the way. The reason I don't usually let them grow is because they get so tall. They dont seem to grow in a good place. This time it chose the right spot

This is doing well too. I have two and both are doing quite well. This one seems to be doing the best. I think the other is getting too much sun at the moment

The daisies are also growing too tall and I bought something to restrain them. They fall over on top of all the other flowers so a few props are in order.

This is a wild rose given to me by a friend. He said it would spread and he aint kiddin....well its still spindly because it does not get enough sun. This year though it had some nice blooms so as always, it can stay

The Hosta is blooming and I love the flowers. I know some people don't like them, I wonder why because the flowers are so pretty.

The Blue Jay family are still around even after the loss of their babies (wipes a tear away) they were so sweet and almost ready to fly. Anyway, they come to the feeder and still look at me as if I should not be there. They come and eat anyway.

What I don't understand is this. The Blue Jay is a fierce bird and yet......when it goes to the feeder and a sweet little Mourning Dove is there. Its afraid. He went down once and the Dove pecked him and he flew away, so they are actually bullies and do not stand up to a sweet little dove.

This thing grows like a weed, it spreads all over the place yet its sold as a garden plant. Its pretty but I have to keep it under control. I forget the name but I know everyone else will remember........

Thats it for today. Hope things pick up soon. Not a lot happening in my garden at the moment.

You know what? I let that same weed grow in our garden! LOL! And, you are right, it's really tall! LOL! We have no bluejays this year? So weird! We usually have tones? I hope they are ok! Love all the pictures! I love that one that you say spreads all over the place! If you find out what it is, please let me know ;o) Take Care ;o)

I love your daisies and pink wild roses. I agree the purple flowers on the hosta are pretty. Your garden looks lovely :)

Your garden looks beautiful and so colorful! I love Fuchsia, too, and you probably already saw. "Weeds" have some of the prettiest flowers!
