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.

What a lazy cat. Well I hope she is enjoying watching the fish from a distance. Did I say, we now have 4? well we do. My Goldfish had a baby. It took awhile to notice because goldfish are black when babies. So the shadow I kept seeing was really another fish.
Anyway tis the season of the daisies, the yellow black eyed Susies and the more Autumn flowers.

The Holly has a load of berries this year, is that a bad sign?

I try to make every little corner special. We collect stones on the beaches and in the fields. This is where they end up, somewhere in my garden

The baskets I bought in the Spring have all done well. I will remember that for next year.

Loads of work to do before I put it all to bed for winter. I was hoping for a good weekend but it looks like it might rain. Next week is supposed to be hot again. I am soooooo ready for the Autumn cooler days.

Thanks for sharing the gorgeous photos! Of course, my eye went right to that beautiful basket of Fuchsia--another favorite of mine to bead.

Kept forgetting to thank you for the nice comment on my blog about buying the violets.
